"Your talent determines what you can do. Your motivation determines how much you are willing to do. Your attitude determines how well you do it."

NFL running back Benny Cunningham has been pushing boundaries and breaking records since his high school days.
As a student at Goodpasture Christian School in Madison, TN, he set records for single-season rushing yards and all-purpose yards, as well as career TDs, TDs in a game and TDs in a season. He then spent multiple seasons as a star player at Middle Tennessee State University before being signed by the St. Louis Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2013.
Known for his kick returns and ability to break tackles, off the field Cunningham loves working out and strives to maintain a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
