If you are a Penn State alum, then you should know who John Urchel is and what he means to Penn State.

Urchel has two loves in his life, math and football. He had a 4.0 grade point average and earned a masters degree in mathematics before the age of 21. He won the William V. Campbell award in 2012 for being the best student off the field. He was good on the field, too. So good that his play earned him a spot in teh NFL on the Baltimore Ravens roster.
