Former Naples High School standout Carlos Hyde was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2nd round of the 2014 National Football League Draft. The 49ers selected the 6-foot, 230 lb. running back from The Ohio State University, after Hyde led the Big Ten Conference in scoring the past two seasons and finished sixth on Ohio State’s career rushing list.
At Naples High School, Hyde ran for 944 yards as a junior in 2007, during an undefeated 15-0 Golden Eagle football season culminating in the school’s second football State Championship. As a senior in 2008, Hyde had 1650 yards and 16 touchdowns in 13 games, which earned him a scholarship from the Buckeyes.
Carlos Hyde is only the third Naples High School player ever drafted into the NFL. In 1995, Fred McCrary went to the Philadelphia Eagles in the 6th round and Spencer Adkins went to the Atlanta Falcons in 2009 also in the 6th round.
