Christipher Collins "Chris" Warren (born January 24, 1967) is a former professional football player, a running back in the National Football League for 11 seasons. He played from 1990 to 2000, primarily for the Seattle Seahawks, but also for the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Early years[edit]

Born in Silver Spring, Maryland, Warren was raised in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area and attended Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax, Virginia. After an outstanding high school football career with the Rams, he graduated in 1985 and enrolled at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, but transferred after two years with the Cavaliers and finished at Ferrum College, a Division III school in rural southwestern Virginia. He was selected by the Seahawks in the fourth round (89th overall) of the 1990 NFL draft.

Professional career[edit]

Initially seeing action as a kick returner, Warren's breakout season as a professional came in 1992, when he rushed for 1,017 yards. He followed that season with three more years with at least 1,000 yards rushing, setting a career-high in 1994 with 1,545 rushing yards. In 1995, Warren set another career-best with 15 rushing touchdowns.

Warren was a three-time selection for Pro Bowl in three consecutive seasons (1993, 1994, & 1995). By the end of his stint in Seattle he held the Seahawks' career rushing record, logging 6,706 total rushing yards for the franchise from 1990 to 1997. In 2005 Shaun Alexander eclipsed that record.

Warren had two sons, Chris Warren III is a current running back for Texas Longhorns football team and Conlin Warren. He also has two daughters, Ariana Warren and Kayla Warren. Warren now helps out coaching for the Edison High School football team in Alexandria, Virginia.
