"I let people say whatever they want to say," said LeShoure. "It looks like I'm running straight up and down because of my size, I'm bigger than most running backs.
"I'm not going to lie, there are a couple of guys who have gotten some licks on me but what running back hasn't taken a few licks in their career. I try to dish out as much punishment as I get."
LeShoure compares his running style to that of Kansas City Chiefs star Larry Johnson. Mikel told us that he's entertaining the idea of graduating in December in order to enroll in the spring semester at the college of his choice but nothing has been set in stone.
LeShoure is also solid in the classroom carrying a 4.6 GPA and scoring a 20 on his ACT.
