If this is your first visit to this blog, I have been following one of the best football families in the country in the McCaffrey family. My original article about them was here: http://collegefootballcrazy.com/the-mccaffrey-family/
This may be the last update for a while, unless something big happens such as Christian McCaffrey winning the Heisman Trophy, or Dylan McCaffrey committing to play college football for a certain school.
The fantastic 2015 college football regular season came to a close on Saturday with one of the more impressive performances of the season by Christian McCaffrey.
Against the USC Trojans, McCaffrey ran for 207 yards on 32 carries and a Touchdown. He caught 4 passes for 105 yards and another Touchdown.
He completed 1 pass in only 1 attempt for an 11 yard Touchdown.
As a return man, he had 2 punt returns for 29 yards and 5 Kickoff returns for an additional 120 yards.
On the season, Christian McCaffrey ran for 1,847 yards and 8 Touchdowns. He caught 41 passes for 540 yards and an additional 4 Touchdowns.
McCaffrey threw 3 passes all year completing 2 of them and both of them for Touchdowns.
On Kickoff returns, he averaged just under 29 yards with a Touchdown. He never quite broke one for the distance as a Punt returner, but he was close this past weekend.
Christian McCaffrey will still have a season to improve on those numbers.
Back at home, in Colorado, the Valor Christian High School Eagles won their 6th state title by avenging an earlier loss to Pomona with a close 29 to 26 victory.
Dylan McCaffrey threw for 194 yards on 20 completions out of 28 passing attempts. He threw for a score and ran for another while gaining 52 yards on the ground.
On the season, McCaffrey threw for 2,800 yards and 27 Touchdowns while giving up only 4
Listed at 6-5, 215, he is a different type of an athlete than his brother, Christian. Dylan has his father’s height, but he’s clearly athletic enough to gain yardage with his feet having run for just under 600 yards at 592 and 13 Touchdowns.
Dylan McCaffrey is a junior and with another year left in high school, his recruitment is about to get really interesting.
The year is over for oldest McCaffrey son, Max, at Duke.
The season is now also over for third son, Dylan, and for fourth son, Luke.
It’s been a great season for the McCaffrey family and for us that have enjoyed following them. Heisman candidate, Christian McCaffrey will have one more game.
