We've all heard the famous line uttered by star players at the end of the Super Bowl. Amid the confetti and hoopla on the field, the player turns to the camera and says, "I'm going to Disney World!"
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo is not going to Disney World. Nor is he going on vacation. He's going to class.
Ayanbadejo, a two-time All-Pro special-teams player, is studying for his Master's in Business Administration at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. And he has to get back for class this week.
The outspoken Ravens linebacker is brash, smart and articulate on many topics. He has come out publicly in support of same-sex marriage and is not afraid to take on controversial subjects that he believes in. Having succeeded on the football field, he is concurrently preparing for his future off the field.
Let's just hope class doesn't conflict with the Ravens' victory parade.
