Most Ivy League college seniors spend time reading the Wall Street Journal in preparation for job interviews.
But today, Columbia Captain Alex Gross is in the Wall Street Journal.
In a spectacular piece by Joshua Robinson Alex's remarkable character comes shining through.
All of us who have even briefly known or spoken to Alex are not surprised.
Here's the key paragraph:
"Like roughly 100 others at Columbia and countless more throughout the Ivy League, Mr. Gross leads the double life of a football player and a student at an elite university—two sets of commitments that, really, should not be able to share one person's schedule. Yet over the last three years he has made the All-Ivy team, been Ivy League Rookie of the Year and built the highest grade-point average of any senior on the team."
One year ago this week, Alex's season was lost because of a terrible injury during the opening kick off at Lafayette.
This time, it will be Alex's day.
