Jamaal Charles is fast. Like he-could-get-pulled-over-for-a-speeding-ticket fast. The NFL running back can run 40 yards in 4.36 seconds and has a personal record of 10.18 seconds for the 100-meter dash. Let’s just say he knows a thing or two about speed.
Charles started making waves early, winning multiple awards in high school as a football and track athlete. Now, as a running back for Kansas City, Charles has built a reputation as one of the fastest and most agile players in the league. With his rapid burst through the hole and his uncanny ability to make players miss, he’s a scary thing to face on the field. Charles is already the NFL’s all-time career leader in average yards per carry. His supersonic speed and strong athleticism have impressed fans and players alike, leading to three Pro Bowl appearances—and that’s just the beginning. Using his All-American track speed from college, the dynamic star stays motivated by his love for the game. It’s full speed ahead for Charles, and he has no plans to slow down.
