Mind and Matter: A Life in Math and Football

John Urschel and Louisa Thomas

Former Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman John Urschel was taking college-level calculus courses by the age of 13. But he also loved football, accepting a scholarship to Penn State and playing for the Nittany Lions while pursuing both undergraduate and graduate degrees in math before turning pro. Now off the turf, mathematician Urschel retired at age 26 to pursue a PhD at MIT. As he says, "So often, people want to divide the world into two. Matter and energy. Wave and particle. Athlete and mathematician. Why can't something be both?" Urschel’s memoir explores the challenges of making difficult choices and the rewards of following one’s passions.
