John Tyler has sent 21 Lions to the NFL.
That's the most number of pros from any high school in East Texas.
Earl Campbell is the most famous former JT athlete.
He won a state championship in high school, he won the Heisman Trophy at Texas and he went from the Oilers to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
But Earl never made it to the Super Bowl.
Gary Baxter went from John Tyler to Baylor to the Baltimore Ravens, but Baxter didn't make it to the Super Bowl.
Tim Crowder went from John Tyler to the Broncos and Buccaneers but he never played in a Super Bowl.
Quincy Stewart, Terrence Robinson, Ricklan Holmes-Milles, David Warren and Morris Anderson all played at John Tyler.
They all made it to the NFL but they didn't make it to the Super Bowl.
Kendall Hunter came close.
He and the 49ers fell short in the NFC Championship Game.
But one former JT athlete has not only played in a Super Bowl, he's won it.
Aaron Ross played in Super Bowl 42 when the Giants ruined the Patriots' perfect season four years ago.
Ross is the only former John Tyler Lion with a Super Bowl ring.
He also has a national championship ring.
Ross and the Longhorns won it all in 2005, and in the year 2000, he almost won a state championship.
That's him, #3, scoring for JT.
Of all the John Tyler pros, only Aaron Ross has a Super Bowl ring, and soon he'll have a chance to win another one.
Super Bowl 46 will be on KETK February 5th.
