He began his football career in Titusville, Florida, and he gained recognition as a high school athlete in Onondaga, New York. In high school, he excelled in football, basketball, and track.

Murray had an outstanding high school career, which made him a top prospect in New York and a three-star recruit.

He started his college football career at the University of Central Florida (UCF) and was later drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Throughout his NFL career, Murray has also been a part of the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Baltimore Ravens, and Denver Broncos.

Latavius Murray’s wife, Shauntay Skanes, is originally from Florida and has a Military background. She has been serving as a Navy officer in the United States Navy since 2007.

Though it is unclear if she still serves in the US Navy, her husband never fails to encourage her to follow her dreams.

In 2018, when Skanes gave birth to her first son, Major, she had to leave her family to continue her military service. Rather than persuading her to leave the Navy, Murray fully supports her decision to serve for as long as she wants.

In support of her wife’s career, Murray said,

“She decided to stay active, and I fully support her. When you have those desires before the relationship, you have to do everything you can to make sure that person is still being the person she wants to be, and you support her. It’s the same with my career, so it’s only right that I do the same for her.”

Latavius Murray has been nominated several times for the Salute to Service Award due to his unwavering commitment to supporting the military.

In 2020, while playing for the New Orleans Saints, he was once again nominated for the Salute to Service Award.
