Athletes have to pay close attention to their diets and nutrition habits, though Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy may have taken things to a new level. 

Per Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post, McCoy confirmed he drinks a very unique type of milk:

Colt McCoy confirms that yes, he drinks raw, unpasteurized milk, “Hard to find,” he texted. “Basically have to have your own cow.” https://t.co/fWhGaJZGcA

Washington head coach Jay Gruden told reporters during the NFL's annual league meetings his quarterback consumes a lot of milk every day. 

"I mean, this is a guy who works hard and drinks a gallon of milk every day for strong bones," Gruden said.

McCoy grew up on a farm and had easy access to cows, so it probably just made sense for him to get his thirst quenched in a different way. It's helped him have an eight-year NFL career to this point.
