2021 NFL Draft: Mapping out high school home of Trevor Lawrence and every No. 1 pick since 1990 - HIGHSCORE
2021 NFL Draft: Mapping out high school home of Trevor Lawrence and every No. 1 pick since 1990
Since 1990, there had been 19 quarterbacks selected as the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft. On Thursday, Trevor Lawrence made 20. The 6-foot-6, 220-pound signal caller from Cartersville (Ga.) was just announced by commissioner Roger Goodell as the top pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Lawrence was the fourth straight quarterback selected No. 1 overall. He is the second Georgia signal caller since 2011 to come off the board first, joining Cam Newton of Westlake (Atlanta).

The Clemson star was a slam dunk pick at No. 1 and has been viewed in that light since his high school days. He threw for 13,902 yards and 121 touchdowns in 56 career games (53 wins) at Cartersville and was the unanimous No. 1 recruit in the country. He hit the ground running at Clemson, leading the Tigers to a national championship as a freshman and going 39-3 during his career.

While Georgia's reputation as a high school football hotbed and pipeline to the pros continues to grow, California and Texas have produced a third of the top picks over the last three decades with five each. Of those 10 picks, eight were quarterbacks. Interestingly, though Florida leads all states in draft picks since 1990, none have gone No. 1.

Read on for a complete breakdown of top picks since 1990.

The Trailblazers opened the season with a big win over Montgomery in Bronny James' first game.

With many eagerly anticipating the high school basketball debut of Bronny James, No. 3 Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.) opened its season Thursday night with a 91-44 victory over Montgomery (San Diego) at the San Diego Tip-Off Challenge.

The two-time defending CIF Open Division state champions jumped to a 7-0 advantage and led by as many as 53 points in the wire-to-wire victory.

The Trailblazers were paced by strong efforts from Kentucky pledge B.J. Boston, who finished with 22 points to lead all scorers, and TCU commit Terren Frank, who chipped in 20.

Harold Yu , a 7-foot-3 center from China, scored eight points. Zaire Wade , the son of three-time NBA champ Dwyane Wade, and Shy Odom had six points apiece.

Sierra Canyon will return to the San Diego Tip-Off Challenge tomorrow night to face off against St. Augustine (San Diego), which won its opener as well on Thursday night.

High school baseball: Teams with the most state championships - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball: Teams with the most state championships
It's been 34 seasons since Tucson won an Arizona state baseball championship, and the Badgers have won only won four since 1957. Yet, Tucson has heads MaxPreps list of teams with the most high school baseball championships.

The Badgers won their first state title in 1912, but the greatest stretch of sustained excellence for Tucson came between 1939 and 1956. During that 18-year period, Tucson won 15 state crowns, including eight in a row from 1939 to 1946. The greatest Tucson team, however, might be the 1972 team that went 25-0. Tucson has rebounded to appear in the Class 5A state finals in 2018 and 2019, finishing as the runner-up each time.

Woodrow Wilson (Washington, D.C.) is closing in on Tucson and might have tied the Badgers by now if not for COVID. Wilson has won every DCIAA championship since 1993 and it would have been the favorite in 2020 and 2021. Wilson plays in an association with just 15 schools.

Asher (Okla.) is one of three schools tied with 22 state championships. That total is actually a bit misleading since Asher has won a total of 45 baseball championships. However only 22 of them have come in the spring. With no football program, Asher also plays baseball in the fall and has racked up 23 championships during that season as well.

Other teams with 22 championships include Bishop Hendricken (Warwick, R.I.) and Jackson Prep (Miss.).

The championships listed are based on information found on state association websites. Not all state websites had complete lists of past champions. MaxPreps also included independent and private school championships, including TAPPS in Texas, the MAIS in Mississippi and the NCISAA in North Carolina.

Past champion lists were unavailable for AISA in Alabama, the SCISA in South Carolina and the VISAA in Virginia. California is not included because it does not hold state championships in baseball (although a few championships seasons were held in the 1920s.). The Inter-AC in Pennsylvania is also not included, although Penn Charter holds the record there with 46 championships dating back to the late 1800s.

Video: Top 25 high school football rankings
The final rankings of the 2019 season.

The St. John Bosco Braves end the 2019 season as the MaxPreps National Champions.

They finished 13-1 and moved into the top spot after beating then No. 1 Mater Dei (Santa Ana) in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 championship. They followed that with a 49-28 win against No. 12 De La Salle (Concord) to win the school's first CIF Open Division state title since 2016.

Bosco's resume is one of the strongest in the country with other notable wins over DeMatha (Hyattsville, Md.), Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.), Liberty (Henderson, Nev.), Our Lady of Good Counsel (Olney, Md.), Servite (Anaheim, Calif.), JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano, Calif.), Calabasas (Calif.) and Corona Centennial (Calif.).

St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.), North Shore (Houston) and Marietta (Ga.) all moved up in the final rankings.

The Raiders went from five to three after snapping a 38-game winning streak by St. Louis (Honolulu). They won 35-19 Saturday in the GEICO State Champions Bowl Series in Las Vegas. They wrapped up their first undefeated season since 2010, finishing 15-0, but St. Thomas Aquinas' resume didn't stack up with the Braves or Monarchs.

The Mustangs moved up to No. 4 after repeating as 6A Division 1 Texas state champs. They handed Duncanvilles its first loss of the season with a 31-17 win. Dematrius Davis Jr. was named Offensive MVP for the second consecutive year.

After the Blue Devils won their first Georgia state title since 1967 they answered that with a one-sided 53-14 win over Eastside Catholic (Sammamish, Wash.) in the opener of the GEICO State Champions Bowl Series. 2020 Tennessee signee Harrison Bailey threw for 410 yards and six touchdowns without playing a minute in the second half. He finished his senior season throwing for 4,671 yards and 50 scores.

The only new team to join the rankings was the Kentucky 5A champs Covington Catholic (Park Hills). They went 15-0 and jumped into the Top 25 after No. 23 Denton Guyer (Texas) lost in the 6A Division 2 championship.
