Some call this city in the Palmetto state, “Football City USA”. This South Carolina city sends the most players to the NFL per capita. Wow, this is something to brag about. 41 NFL players are reportedly from here!
I was exactly today years old when I realized this thanks to our source, Channel 9. Rock Hill has a population of 75,000 people and has reportedly turned out more NFL players per capita than any other city in the USA. This is not news to those of you who have lived there for awhile.

Currence is making waves among those keeping an eye on promising players. He is the best wide receiver in the nation and goes to South Pointe High School.

Experts Say This Is The Most Underrated North Carolina City
Chances are you have been to many of the best-known places in North Carolina. But what about a town that is just unbelievable to visit but just doesn’t have its own public relations team to tell you about it? Experts say this is the most underrated North Carolina City.
The folks over at Prevention magazine put together a list of cities across the United States that are worth your time to visit, but that you just never hear a lot about. I just love discovering towns and for the first time experiencing their beauty, as well as the food, the activities. Often times when you find these places everyone in the family thinks, “where has this town been all my life?”
What exactly does “underrated” mean? Google says it simply means not rated or valued highly enough. If you are like me and on a budget, my travel these days consists of places I can get to in a car in 8 hours or less. And with the vacation season coming up, it’s the perfect time to take a look at these underrated locations. While we were at it we went ahead and found out the underrated towns in South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, and Florida. By absolute chance, I have been to this underrated town in North Carolina. We actually ended up there when we got lost. It is charming, beautiful and one of the most underrated parts of the Outer Banks.
