Every state has a particular sport for which it's known when it comes to producing talented athletes.

 

For states like Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and New York, that sport is basketball. Kids grow up on skates in Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota. Football is king in Texas (and in most southern states).

 

With respect to the smattering of athletes who move on in the traditional sports of basketball, baseball and hockey, track and field continues to be the strongest source of overall success for teenage athletes in Maine.
