Before They Were Buffalo Bills: LeSean McCoy

McCoy's elusiveness was on display at Bishop McDevitt High School.

The one word that is often used to describe LeSean McCoy is elusive. Get the running back into space and he's extremely hard to catch. This was the case in McCoy's first season with the Buffalo Bills when he averaged 4.4 yards per carry and was frequently on display during his career with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Before the NFL, McCoy was showing off his elusiveness for the Pittsburgh Panthers. In his two seasons with the Panthers, McCoy rushed for 2816 yards and 35 touchdowns on 584 carries (4.8 YPC). He also had 65 receptions for 549 yards and one touchdown in college.

McCoy's elusiveness was also on display in high school. The running back played for Bishop McDevitt High School and was highly productive for the Crusaders. The footage above comes from his time at Bishop McDevitt. In his junior season, McCoy put up huge numbers, rushing for 2,828 yards and 35 touchdowns. As a senior, McCoy suffered a compound ankle fracture which ended his high school career. McCoy rushed for 6,640 yards and 75 touchdowns during his time with the Crusaders.
