Here Are the College Majors of Every Player in Super Bowl

How important is your major? It’s an open question, just meant as food for thought. There are so many options and so much personal growth that happens before your 25 that committing to a major can seem daunting… and sometimes ridiculous.

There are the 1% of students who know in their heart of hearts who they are, but what about the other 99% of us? Where does that leave us? Are we behind if we don’t know what to major in in college by the time we’re 15? 18? 22?

Just to show you how much things can change here’s a list of the college majors of the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. Sure these guys are great at football but they all also went to college and majored in something!
