Right smack in the middle of the Sunshine State passed the beautiful beaches, palm trees, million-dollar homes, hustle and bustle of city life, lies the trifling community 30 miles west of downtown West Palm Beach. A community so off the beaten path it’s literally surrounded by sugar cane fields. A community that just so happens to be the richest producing College & NFL soil on earth! An area most have never heard of, nor knew has such rich history for not only its agriculture, but producing athletes called...

THE MUCK!

This area of the country throughout history has produced most of the sugar used in the United States at one point; it has also produced the most number of Collegiate & NFL athletes per capita in any region of the world where football is not only life, but a way out.

Over 400 Collegiate & 70 NFL athletes and still counting....

MUCK CITY PROJECT

America's most under-recognized community for its agricultural history and athletic dominance. The Muck City project focuses on bringing locals and outsiders together; to preserve, recognize the magnitude of success, and reflect on the history from a part of the country that has played such an intricate part of America's pastime and favorite sport. Whether born and raised in The Muck or learning about it for the first time, it’s a story that needs to be told, heard and shared! 

The existence of Muck City dates back to the early 1900's related to the federal project of draining the land around Lake Okeechobee, the acreage known for its rich quality and quantity of loamy black muck soil. This region of Florida produces some of the richest soil on earth, having produced over 75% of the United States sugar supply and many other crops used by the American people throughout history. The history of the muck not only lies in its soil and agriculture, but in its people, which is a major part of American history...

HISTORY

The Super Bowl of the muck and one of the fiercest High School Football rivalries in the Country. The game that captures everyone’s attention and halts everything in town.
