Dallas Cowboys Running Back Ezekiel Elliott Gets Hot & Wet for ESPN’s Body Issue
The 2017 Body Issue will be one of ESPN‘s most hottest one’s yet. We’ve already seen the first cover with baseball player Javier Baez and now ESPN has unveiled another cover featuring rookie player for the Cowboys, Ezekiel Elliott, who I’ve been crushing on and stalking on Instagram since his crop top red carpet look.
With his thick beard and equally thick build, the running back manages to steal the spotlight while posing in water and dripping completely wet, much to my delight:
Inside his feature, the 21-year-old 6 foot-tall Missouri native speaks about how much work he puts into his craft, starting out as a baseball player, and his love for crop tops. Take a look at a few of the excerpts and be on the lookout for ESPN’s Body Issue when it hits newsstands on July 7:
ON HOW BRUTAL FOOTBALL CAN BE: “I don’t know if people really understand how much work we put into our craft. We play such a brutal game. Working out by itself is a hard task, but keeping our body together is tough because we play this brutal sport week in and week out. It’s hard.”
ON STARTING OUT WITH BASEBALL: “It was really my dreamt at first. t helped develop my hand-eye coordination, and then I started football when I was 7. And I think that helped my toughness and just being a physical athlete. I was also a basketball player. My parents always made sure I was doing a sport no matter what season it was.”
ON CROP TOPS: “When I started in college, it was just the way I wore my jersey, just kind of more comfortable for me. And it drew a lot of attention. When we went to the White House after winning the national championship, even the president took notice.”
