In order to be a NFL running back, one has to be nimble. Alex Collins of the Baltimore Ravens can now check that off his list thanks to swapping his cleats for some dance shoes.

The 23-year-old running back started Irish dancing in high school with the help of his football coach’s daughter. On the football field, the first-year Ravens rusher is off to a good start in 2017-18, averaging 7.1 yards per carry. Perhaps more tailbacks in the future will favor the dance floor over other drills from here on out.
