John Urschel is known for the exceptional status he holds in two very disparate and demanding professions: mathematics and pro football. He is currently working on his PhD in Mathematics at MIT and plays for the Baltimore Ravens as an offensive lineman. Equally brainy and brawny, he is committed to promoting the importance of both math and sports as critical to the development of life skills. The winner of the "academic Heisman" coming out of Penn State, John has been asked to give the Commencement speech for his alma mater Penn State University this spring.
