Most Popular Athletes For Each State Per Google Search

The folks at Best Tickets Blog created a graphic that illustrates the most popular athletes according to Google searches from the past year. There are some no brainers on the map, such as LeBron James owning the most real estate, Tom Brady conquering New England and Rusell Wilson claiming Washington state.

Some of the more interesting results include Tiger Woods winning Vermont, Andrew Wiggins being heavily searched in both Kansas and Kentucky (UK takes recruiting seriously), West Virginia tracking its favorite son Geno Smith, and Payton Manning’s Anaconda Plan.

Below is the full graphic of the most popular athlete in all 50 states.
