Miles Sanders

Running Back
Philadelphia Eagles

Miles Sanders, born and raised in Pittsburgh, is already something of a Pennsylvania football legend. First, he was a star running back at Woodland Hills HS, a school that has produced NFL stars like Rob Gronkowski and Jason Taylor. Then he broke out as Saquon Barkley’s successor in the Penn State Nittany Lions backfield. Fittingly, Miles now plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, the nearby franchise that drafted him 53rd overall in 2019. Serving as the team’s starting running back, Miles broke out in his rookie campaign with more than 1,300 scrimmage yards with six touchdowns.
