Bio

LeSean Kamel McCoy was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on July 12, 1988. A running back for the Philadelphia Eagles, he is sometimes known by his nickname, 'Shady'. McCoy was the NFL rushing title winner for 2013 and holds various rushing records for the Eagles, including the single-season records for rushing yards and rushing touchdowns.

During his youth, McCoy played football for Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg. At the end of his junior year, he was named the Class AAAA Player of the Year and first team All-State by the Associated Press. Additionally, he received the Mid-Penn Commonwealth Conference's Most Valuable Player Award. He was once again named first team All-State during his senior year. In 2012, Bishop McDevitt honored McCoy by retiring his old jersey number.

Having initially committed to the University of Miami, McCoy suffered a serious ankle injury before the end of his time at high school, which threatened his football career. The injury, coupled with other problems at school, saw him attend the Milford Academy prep school in New Berlin, New York instead. After a year there, he transferred to the University of Pittsburgh in 2007, where he played college football for the Pittsburgh Panthers. In his first year, he was named the Big East Rookie of the Year. Then, in 2008, he was named second team All-American, as well as the Big East Player of the Year and the Big East Offensive MVP.

McCoy declared himself available for the 2009 NFL Draft and was eventually selected in the second round, as the 53rd overall pick, by the Philadelphia Eagles. In his rookie season, he primarily served as backup to Brian Westbrook, but impressed many onlookers with his performances and set a new franchise record for rushing yards by a rookie player.

The 2010 season saw McCoy take over as the team's starting running back and he exceeded 1,000 rushing yards over the course of the season. In 2011, he was selected for the Pro Bowl and was named first team All-Pro by the Associated Press. After a concussion hindered his 2012 season, McCoy bounced back in 2013, earning the second Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors of his career. He was the NFL's rushing leader for the season, breaking various Eagles team records in the process, and was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Year.
