Christian Jackson McCaffrey was born in Castle Rock, Colorado, in 1996, and he will be 24-years old this season. McCaffrey’s parents played sports at Stanford. His mother was a soccer star, and his father was a wide receiver who also played in the NFL (Ed McCaffrey).
In high school, McCaffrey played running back, wide receiver, and on special teams as a punter. He also played basketball. Many high school records fell, including setting records in total career touchdowns (141), career touchdown receptions (47), career all-purpose yards (8,845), and single-season all-purpose yards (3,032). He won the Gatorade Football Player of the Year for Colorado in both 2012 and 2013. He was a beast from the beginning.
While dominating football and playing basketball, Christian was also an elite sprinter on the track and field team, running the 100- and 200-meter dash. Rivals considered him a four-star recruit, and the third-best overall running back in his class when he committed to Stanford University.
As a true freshman (2014), McCaffrey did something rather uncommon - he played all in 13 games. McCaffrey broke out in his sophomore year, breaking Barry Sanders' NCAA record of 3,250 all-purpose yards as he finished with 3,864.
He also finished second in the nation with 2,019 rushing yards, and even breaking a single-game All-Purpose yards record with 461. That season he was a consensus All-American, the AP college football player of the year, and finished second to Alabama’s Derrick Henry in the 2015 Heisman Trophy voting.
During his junior season (2016) at Stanford, McCaffrey led the nation in all-purpose yards with 211 per game. Unfortunately, he injured his hip in early October, which is the ONLY time he has gotten hurt in college or the NFL and he only missed one game!
McCaffrey decided to not play in his team’s bowl game, as he opted to prepare for the NFL Draft. His decision was…
