Ezekiel Elliott is such a freak athelte, he likely could have gone professional in three sports: football, track & field and basketball. The star Cowboys running back attended John Burroughs High School in Missouri where he played all three.
In his senior year, he racked up 3,061 all-purpose yards and 50 TDs. In track & field, he was named the Gatorade Player of the Year in Missouri after recording career-best times of 10.95 seconds in the 100-meter dash, 22.05 seconds in the 200-meter dash. At just 6’0” tall. Elliott was also a force on the basketball team, routinely dunking over players and using his speed to get to the rim at will. These highlights from a reel back in 2013 demonstrate just how freakishly athletic the now 21-year-old was.
.@EzekielElliott is a BEAST.
