Before he starred for one of the most dynamic offenses in college and the pros, he had to survive middle school.
Mike Evans is in his ninth season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The four-time Pro Bowl selection is one of the NFL’s most consistent and feared receivers. He played a key role in helping the Buccaneers win Super Bowl LV, leading his team in every major receiving category during the regular season and catching 11 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns in the postseason. He is the only player in NFL history to start his career having eight consecutive seasons with at least 1,000 receiving yards. He and his wife, Ashli, started the Mike Evans Family Foundation in 2017, focusing on empowering youth, encouraging education, and taking a stand against domestic violence.
The Middle School Rules of Mike Evans highlights the adversity Mike had to overcome in his childhood, the impact of growing up in Galveston (an island city on the Gulf Coast of Texas that was greatly affected by Hurricane Ike), and the people who shaped him most—especially after the devastating loss of his father.
