Super All-rounder

This guy is the ultimate definition of “All rounded”. Good at both sports and studies. His motivation to play football is a little creepy though: “I play because I love the game. I love hitting people.” Note: American football is the “Upsized” version of the rugby in Singapore schools. Protective helmet and gear are needed.

The National Football League offseason is supposed to be a time for players to relax, recover from the brutality of the prior season, and prepare for the next one.

Not for Baltimore Ravens player John Urschel. The 6’3”, 305-pound offensive lineman will begin a PhD in mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology this year. The Hulk-like math geek, who graduated from Penn State with a 4.0 grade point average,will study spectral graph theory, numerical linear algebra, and machine learning.
