Good article highlighting 10 athletes who happen to be pretty smart. It's compliments of College Crunch.
On the list is Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who scored a 1580 on the SAT. He also majored in economics at Harvard.
My favourite on the list is this one:
Ross Ohlendorf: Austin-born Ross Ohlendorf, currently starting pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates, graduated from Princeton with a 3.8 GPA studying operations research and financial engineering. (You know, the easy stuff.) His SAT score was a ridiculous 1520, and in a recent off-season he worked as a volunteer intern for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, contributing to programs designed to trace diseases in livestock. You get the sense that baseball isn't his entire life, just the thing he happens to be doing right now.Take a read.
