Ezekiel Elliott's 'feed me' celebration started at Ohio State with Carlos Hyde

Elliott has been doing this for a long time.

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott has had plenty of opportunities to do his signature “feed me” celebration this season. For Elliott, that initiated during his college career at The Ohio State University.

The celebration is something Elliott picked up from former college teammate and current San Francisco 49ers running back Carlos Hyde. When Hyde moved on to the NFL, Elliott kept the move going after big plays for the Buckeyes.

This season, as the most productive running back in the NFL with 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns, Elliott has had plenty of reasons to celebrate.

Hyde’s other celebration in college involved flexing. He got flagged and fined for that one this season.

The “feed me” celebration has certainly become a hallmark of Elliott’s game, even if it did originate with Hyde.
