Yes. He played at Southern Mississippi from 1987 to 1990. He went there because they were the only school to offer him a scholarship (and wanted him to play defensive back).

Nearly 100% (if not 100%) of NFL players attend college and play College Football (though maybe not in the USA). In order to be drafted in the NFL you must be 3 years removed from high school, So, while you're sitting around waiting for the NFL for 3 years, why not play football and get better? Not all draftees play all three years, though it is rare. Maurice Clarett was drafted but only played 1 season. Jeremy Bloom only played 1 season and then focused on his skiing career before being drafted. Though this is more the exception than the rule. He Played For the Falcons then was traded to the Packers and now he plays for the Jets

What inspired Brett Favre to become a professional football player?

Brett Favre had always liked to play football since his dad, Irvin Favre, was a football coach for high school.

But in Favre's Senior year of college, he got into a near fatal car accident and the first thing he asked the doctors was "Will I be able to play football still?"
