CJ Prosise Biography

C.J. Prosise is a running back for the Seattle Seahawks. He helped the team make it to the NFC Divisional Playoff round, where they lost to the Atlanta Falcons. Prosise showed much promise during the season, and his number “22” jersey is a favorite among sports memorabilia fans.

Childhood and High School

The running back was born on May 20, 1994, in Petersburg, VA. He went on to play his high school football at Woodberry Forest School, located in Madison County, VA. At the time, Prosise played both offense (wide receiver) and defensive (safety).

Prosise stood 6-foot, 2-inches, in high school and weighed 190-lbs. College recruiters viewed him as a three-star safety. Meanwhile, ESPN rated Prosise a 79 out of a hundred. Top schools, including Penn State and North Carolina asked him to join their ranks. After taking it all into consideration, Prosise committed to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on May 26, 2011.

College

To save a year of eligibility, Prosise redshirted his first year, which was 2012. He then became a redshirt freshman in 2013, assuming the role of wide receiver. He played in every game, making seven catches for a total of 72 yards.

The next season, 2014, Prosise started six games, while seeing some action in all thirteen Irish contests. This time, he had 29 catches, totaling 516-yards and four touchdowns.

In 2015 the coaching staff decided to move Prosise to backup running back. Then, when starter Tarean Folston was hurt, Prosise got the nod. He routinely ran for 100-yards per game. Overall, Prosise ran for 1,032-yards for the season.

The Fighting Irish played in the 2016 Fiesta Bowl, losing to Ohio State. Soon thereafter, Prosise announced he would enter the 2016 NFL Draft as a running back.

2016 NFL Draft

Prosise performed well at the NFL combine. He put in a 4.48-second 40 time and recorded a 35.5-inch vertical jump. Moreover, he showed up with some added muscle, weighing 220-lbs, which was thirty more than he played with in high school.

Impressed with his athletic ability, the Seattle Seahawks of the NFC West chose the running back in the third round of the draft. He was the 190th overall selection.

Prosise signed a four-year contract for a $3.11 million salary. He also received a $692, 464 signing bonus.

2016 NFL Season

The rookie played in six games for the Seahawks in 2016. The team handed Prosise the ball 30 times, and he ran for a total of 172 yards. His longest run was a 72-yard touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Seahawks threw the ball to Prosise quite a bit. He made 17 receptions for a total of 208 yards.

Unfortunately, in the November game against the Eagles, in which he made his only career touchdown, Prosise injured his shoulder and was expected to miss the remainder of the regular season.
