Ryan Fitzpatrick & His Harvard Degree
Buffalo Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is off to a fantastic start in 2011, leading the Bills to an impressive 2-0 start, entering Sunday's major test vs. the New England Patriots. Fitzpatrick has already thrown for 472 yards and four touchdowns during the early NFL campaign. After bouncing around the league for several years, the Harvard alum may have finally found a football home amid the tall trees of Western New York.
Luckily for the bearded passer, if this football thing ever fizzles out, the 28-year-old can take his career in pretty much any direction he so chooses. Fitzpatrick scored an astronomical 1580 out of 1600, when taking the now previous version of the SAT exam. In an encore to that performance, the 2004 Ivy League MVP graduated with a degree in economics from the previously noted world-renowned university.
In a SportingNews.com piece, Fitzpatrick described himself as an Apple technology junkie, who would probably be working on Wall Street if he was not playing pro football.
Whatever happens this season in Buffalo, Bills fans can at least take great comfort in knowing their QB is almost certainly the smartest guy on the field and maybe even in the entire stadium.
