Christian McCaffrey has been torching defenses since he was a child

Wednesday December 9th, 2015

Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey has earned himself a spot at Saturday’s Heisman Trophy presentation with his breakaway speed and elusive running this year, but that’s nothing new.

Since he was a little kid, McCaffrey has been evading tacklers and finding the end zone. We have video proof, courtesy of the Denver Broncos.

Video surfaced late on Tuesday of the sophomore playing in a pickup game on the turf at the Denver Broncos’ home field during a break in the action, back when he was small.

Not only was he running impressively, but he signed a football and threw it to the crowd!

Here’s to hoping this video is shown before the winner is announced on Saturday.
