EverythingTop10 is proud to present, “The
Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Christian McCaffery!” #10. His mom and dad also went to Stanford. Asked why he committed to Stanford when he
had options like Notre Dame, Oregon, Wisconsin, Colorado, Florida State, and Nebraska, all
power programs, McCaffery said his heart led him there, and that it felt like home when
he visited. A huge part of this could be that both of
his parents attended Stanford. His father, Ed McCaffery went there, between
1986 and 1990. His mother Lisa also went there; the two actually
met while at Stanford. His mother once joked that she married his
father so they could breed fast white guys. From the looks of Christian, looks like they
succeeded. #9. McCaffrey also played basketball and ran track
in high school. He is one of the biggest breakout stars out
of Colorado in the past few years. Even though he is best known for playing football
as an NFL star, he also participated, and rather successfully so, in track and basketball. He stood out as a sprinter in his high school’s
track and field team, excelling in both the 100- and 200-meter dashes at the Colorado
High School Activities Association state meets. He was also a standout basketball player,
helping the Valor Christian high school boys team reach the state semifinals twice in a
row. He also has musical skills, and is reportedly
an excellent pianist. #8. He comes from a family of sportsmen. His family is one of avid sportsmen and women. His father Ed, famously played football in
college and went on to be drafted by the Giants in 1991 in the third round. Ed McCaffery played for the Giants for three
seasons, before moving on to the 49ers and later to the Broncos, where he made the pro
bowl. His mother Lisa excelled in soccer, starring
for Stanford between 1987 and 1990. His older brother Max also played football
at Duke and for various NFL teams as a wide receiver. His younger brother Luke is also a football
player, a quarterback at the University of Nebraska. It does not stop there, though. Relatives on both his father and mother’s
side have also been accomplished sportspeople. His grandfather, for instance, was once named
the fastest human alive, breaking up to 9 world records in the sprint and low hurdles
categories in the 1950s. #7. McCaffrey does not discuss his extended family
in interviews. Despite the sporting success of his extended
family, it is strange that he does not discuss it in interviews. One of the conditions he and his parents often
set in interviews is ‘no extended family questions.’ In fact, even his parents often seem jumpy
when questions about their extended family arise. #6. He was the king of workouts in college. While other athletes saw workouts as a necessary
evil, with some actually getting in trouble for avoiding workouts, McCaffery is one of
those athletes that actually relished workouts at that age. His strength coach Shannon Turley is known
for trying to break all the recruits over the course of their first year with grueling
fitness tests. In all his years of experience, McCaffrey
was the first player he could never rattle. His responses were apparently like a navy
seal, forcing the coach to design workouts especially for him. #5. McCaffrey skipped his senior season to enter
the NFL Draft. He made the decision to skip his senior season
at Stanford, opting instead to enter the NFL Draft. He made the announcement in 2016, a decision
that effectively saw him miss out on Stanford’s Sun Bowl appearance. This decision was met with mixed reactions,
with supporters generally agreeing that it was a smart decision, and those opposed seeing
it as a selfish move that would likely set a precedent for other college players. #4. He is rumored to be dating swimsuit model
Olivia Culpo. McCaffrey is a notoriously private person. He is however rumored to be dating swimsuit
model and Maxim’s 2019 hottest woman Olivia Culpo. Rumors of this relationship, however, elicited
a response from Olivia Culpo’s ex Danny Amendola. The Lions wide receiver apparently responded
by posting a picture with McCaffery’s ex-girlfriend. #3. McCaffrey loves Doritos. When he got into the league, he started working
with a chef who helped him streamline his diet. He is however allowed some cheat meals, and
one guilty pleasure he often ends up going for is Doritos. He basically loses his self-control with Doritos,
and has confessed to being able to eat an entire king-size bag of Cool Ranch Doritos. #2. He holds the NCAA all-purpose yards record. He had a huge season in 2015, breaking out
as a sophomore that year. He managed to break Barry Sanders’ NCAA
record which stood at 3250, finishing with 3864 yards. He was second in the country in terms of rushing
yards with 2019, becoming the first-ever player at Stanford to rush for 2000 yards in a season. During his Stanford years, he also set such
records as the most rushing yards and all-purpose yards in a single game. He also set further records in the Rose Bowl
game in 2016 with a record 368 all-purpose yards. #1. McCaffrey is a staunch Christian. He has stated before that one of the sources
of motivation for him is his faith. He went to a Christian school, and has even
spent time on international missions. In 2013, he spent the summer on a mission
trip to Rwanda. Even his normal touchdown celebration, where
he beats his chest and points up to God, shows his avid faith. That’s all folks! Please leave a like if you enjoyed the video
