As Georgia Bulldogs running back James Cook prepares for the upcoming College Football Playoff National Championship Game against the Alabama Crimson Tide, he does so with motivation from his older brother. Cook’s sibling is Minnesota Vikings running back and former Florida State Seminoles star Dalvin Cook, who is a three-time Pro-Bowler and in his fifth NFL season.
“I mean, he really just tells me to stay locked in all year and get what I deserve,” James Cook said of Dalvin Cook, via Dawgs247. “And that’s where I’m at now. So he just tell me keep working and my time is going to come. And my team is here. So I’ve got to make the most of it because you only get one of these opportunities. And you can say this is my last one. So I’ve got to make the most of it.”
“That is a motivational factor just knowing that you’ve got an older brother in the NFL,” Cook added later on.
