As a Heisman Trophy winner and a four-time Pro Bowler, George has a lot of laurels on which to rest, but that’s not what he’s been about. One of the first things he did in retirement was run a marathon, which he claims was more difficult than playing in the NFL. He has also served as a spokesman for GetFitTN, a program in Tennessee aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle and preventing Type 2 diabetes.
However, George has put most of his efforts into acting, taking classes, appearing in many smaller productions of Shakespeare plays and even landing a Broadway role as Billy Flynn in the musical Chicago.
If that wasn’t enough, he also went back to school and earned an MBA from Northwestern University, which may not sit well with his fellow Ohio State alums.
