About This Quiz

Sometimes, it's hard to imagine that a popular NFL athlete came from somewhere other than the city where he plays football. However, every NFL player has a hometown where he grew up with a family, a house, and perhaps a dog. How well do you know some of the best players in the league, particularly where they grew up? Here's a quiz where you can test your knowledge on just that!

NFL players often become associated with the city where they play football. It's a tradition as they become icons in their respective cities for their leadership, charitable acts, and on the field play. 

When a player is traded away, there is often a huge backlash from fans in the city who don't want to see their favorite player go. An NFL player becomes so associated with the city where they play that it's almost as if they were born and raised there. The city becomes their home, and the fans are their family. 

Are you going to be able to recall where the players listed in this quiz grew up? It won't be the easiest task for any NFL fan. If you think you can handle the challenge, go ahead and give this quiz your best shot!
