Athlete of the Week: Tackling a healthy sports-life balance with Jeff Gurley

Jeff Gurley is a senior from Leawood, Kan. who is majoring in Political Science. He plays linebacker on the Washington University football team. Last year, he earned All-Collegiate Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW) second team honors as well as Google Cloud Academic All-District and Academic All-CCIW honors. In our first installment of our Athlete of the Week series, I sat down with Gurley to talk about his future plans, his experience as a Wash. U. student-athlete and what he does off the gridiron.
