Lattimore, Marcus Marcus Lattimore (born October 29, 1991) is a former running back in the National Football League. He attended South Carolina University, where he set a career high in running touchdowns (38). He was drafted by the 49ers in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Lattimore was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis before his first season as a pro. The disease has no known cause or cure, but it can be controlled through medication and exercise. Before he was injured, Lattimore had been considering quitting football to focus on his medical school career. However, after discussions with members of his family and staff, he decided to continue playing.
In September 2013, Lattimore announced that he would not be playing football this season because he needed to focus on his health. But after talks with San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula, who believed that Lattimore could play in the future, he decided to give football one more try. In his first game back from injury, Lattimore scored two touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons. He ended up playing in four games this season, scoring seven touchdowns. He signed a contract extension with the 49ers in April 2014.
Lattimore began his professional career by starting eight games for the 49ers at running back. He finished the season with 703 yards and seven touchdowns.
Prior to his junior year at Miami, he ran anchor for the track team. He has had glimpses of top speed since joining the NFL. He is the first running back in history to have two 97-yard rushing touchdowns. His first came in 2014, while he was a member of the Dolphins. The second came last season with the Browns.
Also worth mentioning is that Thomas's father is African American and his mother is White. They met when Tomika (his sister) was attending Miami University and John Elway was attending Stanford University. They married each other's families and got married themselves. Even though they are now divorced, they remain good friends. In fact, Tomika's husband is currently the quarterback for the Denver Broncos!
In conclusion, Thomas is the only running back to have two 97-yard rushing touchdowns. He attended Miami University but ended up going to the Denver Broncos after graduating. He is also the only running back to have two touchdown runs of over 50 yards. His first came in 2014 as a member of the Dolphins and his second came in 2018 with the Browns.

Dolphins of Miami, Larry Csonka, 1966–2021. The Miami Dolphins players with the most running yards in franchise history are represented by this statistic. The Miami Dolphins' career running leader is Larry Csonka, who has 6,737 yards. He remains one of only three runners in NFL history to reach the 6,000-yard mark (Jim Brown and Emmitt Smith are the others). In fact, no other player has even come close. Despite missing most of his last two seasons due to injury, Csonka still ranks third all time among Dolphins running backs.
Csonka was the second player chosen in the 1966 AFL draft (behind John Randle of Kentucky). He spent his first four seasons with the Dolphins, during which time he played in 66 games and started in 60 of them. In 1970, Csonka led the league in rushing yards per game with 147.0. That same year, he was selected for the only All-Pro team of his career.
In 1971, Csonka suffered a knee injury that required surgery and missed the entire season. He returned the next year and ended up being named the Dolphins' Most Valuable Player. However, due to another runner piling up more yards than him, Csonka finished fourth in balloting for the award.
In 1973, Csonka left football to focus on school work.
