What must it be like to be gigantic, handsome, strong, thrifty, AND a math genius?!??! And yet he craves physical contact aka horrible pain. Truly human beings are mysteries.

His plans don't end after the Superbowl! 

John Urschel (of Winnipeg, Manitoba) 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.
