VIDEO: Seahawks RB Alex Collins was a beast as a high school lacrosse player

Alex Collins has gained fame as a football player and is currently a rookie running back with the Seattle Seahawks, but he spent the spring of his senior year on the lacrosse team at South Plantation High School (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) in 2013.

As his highlight tape shows, Collins showed no mercy — spin moves, weaving through defenders and dominating much smaller opponents.

“I used to get parents screaming at me all the time because I just used to lay kids out on the field and you’d hear the parents on the sidelines screaming at the refs like, ‘Get him out of here,’” he told ESPN 710 in Seattle. “I was not nice out there.”

Collins was ranked by 247Sports as the No. 1 running back in the Class of 2013 before enrolling at Arkansas. He was picked in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft and scored his first touchdown Sunday.
