Vick Ballard (born July 16, 1990) is an American football running back for the Indianapolis Colts. He played college football at Mississippi State. He was selected 170th overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts.
Ballard attended Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in 2008 and 2009. Prior to 2010, he transferred to Mississippi State University. In his two years at Mississippi State he rushed for 2,158 yards on 379 carries and 30 touchdowns.
Ballard was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts on April 28, 2012. His first game as a starting running back was played October 14, 2012 against the New York Jets. On October 28, 2012, he caught a pass from Andrew Luck and took it 16 yards for his first career touchdown. Ballard, under pressure from several defensive players, leapt and corkscrewed in mid air as he crossed the goal line. It was considered one of the best plays of the 2012 season.
