Video: Dalvin Cook's Little Brother Put On A Show During State Title Game

Most college football fans know just how talented Florida State running back Dalvin Cook is, so it probably won't surprise anybody that his little brother will be one of the top backs in the 2019 recruiting cycle. 

James Cook, who is a freshman back at Miami Central (where his brother played), stood out during Saturday's 6A title game against Armwood. The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder may be young, lacking size, but he has everything you want in a ball carrier--vision, acceleration, balance--just like his older brother. It showed Saturday, as he rushed for 179 yards and three touchdowns on just 15 carries to help Miami Central win its fifth title in the last six years.

The balance and vision on this touchdown run, captured on video by ESPN's Gerry Hamilton, looks eerily familiar.

Looks like he's tough to bring down, too, even at 180 pounds.

Here was his third score of the day, a 57-yarder to the house.

FSU fans will be happy is he follows in the footsteps of his brother and ends up in Tallahassee.
