What’s up? I’m Christian McCaffrey. You might know me as #23 on the football field. As a running back, I’ve experienced one of the greatest years of my career thus far, leading the league in rushing yards and scoring a touchdown in 14 consecutive games since moving to San Francisco last year.
Fitness and football have always been in my life. I was born in Castle Rock, Colorado where my dad, Ed McCaffrey, played 13 seasons of professional football. My mom, Lisa McCaffrey, played soccer at Stanford. With both parents being star athletes, I quickly became an avid sports fan and athlete. Growing up, I played football, basketball, and track and field, but I knew pretty early on that I was destined for football.
In high school, I played a number of positions on the team—Running Back, Wide Receiver, Cornerback and even Punter—and I broke several state records. For college, I decided to follow in my parents’ footsteps, and accepted a scholarship offer from Stanford. There, I played Running Back for three incredible, record-breaking years before being drafted by North Carolina with the 8th pick in the 2017 Draft.
I spent the first five years of my professional football career in Carolina where I received several Pro Bowl and All-Pro nods. In 2022, I was traded to San Francisco, which is where I call home today. When I’m not on the field, you’ll find me pursuing my passion for philanthropy or spending time with my fiance, Olivia Culpo.
Success is a long game. Stay focused. Stay positive. Stay strong. And the wins will come. Let’s do this, team!
