NFL Star Andrew Hawkins Graduates with 4.0 GPA and Masters Degree from Ivy League Uni “I’m just as smart as I am quick.”

NFL Wide Receiver Andrew Hawkins has graduated from the Ivy League Columbia University with a masters degree in Sports Management, and a 4.0 GPA at aged 31 showing that it’s never too late to go back to school and that you can acheive whatever you set out to do!

He told the press,

“Man, listen. I’m just as smart as I am quick. If you still have the stereotype of the unintelligent black male athlete in your mind, that’s on you. That’s your karma. I will put my math skills up against anyone. And you’re still not going to outrun me unless your name is Usain Bolt.”

After the graduation ceremony he headed straight off to NFL’s Broadcast Boot Camp at Mount Laurel in New Jersey, missing the commencement toasts!

It never stops! Amazing inspiration!

    1. Depends on the player. Just as there are former players that have CTE, there are a lot who are just as lucid as they were when they were playing (not that there shouldn’t be any concern). And, he hasn’t played since 2016..

      Rather than the negative, no matter how well intended, let’s congratulate him on attaining his degree with a 4.0.
