INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Colton High School in California led the NFL draft with three players chosen, according to USA Football.

The sport’s national governing body in the United States found that 243 high schools were involved in the 254 picks made by NFL teams last month.

Colton players were Colorado cornerback Jimmy Smith, who went in the first round to Baltimore, Southern California running back Allen Bradford (sixth round to Tampa Bay), and USC safety Shareece Wright (third round to San Diego).

Colton is located one hour east of Los Angeles. The school’s football coach, Richard Bray, called Colton’s success in the draft a “start of a new tradition.”
