Ezekiel Elliot Dunking On Fools In His High School Basketball Highlight Reel Is Damn Impressive
Ezekiel Elliot attended John Burroughs High School in Missouri where he was a tri-sport superstar in football, basketball and track. In his senior year, he had 3,061 all-purpose yards, 50 total touchdowns and led his team to three straight title games, despite losing all three. In track and 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, Ezekiel 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 2013 demonstrate just how freakishly athletic the now 21-year-old was.
As the NFL’s current leading rusher, it looks like things are only trending upward for the Buckeye alum.
