Bishop Shaquille Sankey was born in Wadsworth, Ohio on September 15, 1992. A running back for the Tennessee Titans, he was selected in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Previously, he had played college football for the Washington Huskies, where he set several school rushing records.
At high school level, Sankey played football for Gonzaga Prep and was a 4A first team All-State selection as both a junior and a senior. By the time he graduated in 2011, he had set a new Greater Spokane League all-time rushing record, having amassed a total of 4,355 rushing yards. Sankey finished his senior year by receiving the Greater Spokane League MVP Award. After verbally committing to Washington State University during his junior year, he changed his mind and eventually enrolled at the University of Washington instead.
Sankey went on to see action as a true freshman, serving as backup to Chris Polk and appearing in 12 of the Washington Huskies' 13 games in 2011. Over the course of the season, he rushed 28 times for a total of 187 yards. Sankey's best performance of the year came against Colorado, when he rushed for 71 yards and scored his only touchdown of the season.
As a sophomore, Sankey enjoyed an excellent season, in which he registered 1,439 and 16 touchdowns, with both stats ranking amongst the highest in the school's history. At the 2012 MAACO Bowl Las Vegas, he was named as the game's MVP. Then, in 2013, he rushed for a total of 1,870 yards, setting a new single season school record in the process. Moreover, he set Washington records for single season rushing attempts, single season rushing yards per game and career rushing touchdowns. At the conclusion of his junior year, Sankey was a first team All-Pac-12 selection and was named as a second team All-American by the Associated Press.
Following his junior year, Sankey opted to bypass his final season of college football eligibility in order to enter the NFL Draft. He was eventually picked in the second round, as the 54th overall selection, by the Tennessee Titans; becoming the first running back to be drafted from the 2014 class.
