NFL player working at Jimmy John’s sandwich shop during the off season

Here’s a little weekend break from our usual political content.  Terrance Ganaway has decided to take a part time job working at Jimmy John’s during the NFL off season, and I can’t help but admire his reason.

from Business Insider:

Ganaway made $390,000 in his rookie season which is the NFL’s minimum wage, and now he’s working at Jimmy John’s 12 hours a week making about $7.50 an hour. But, why?

Ganaway told the Post-Dispatch that he really just wants to occupy all the free-time he has in the offseason:

“I just wanted to stay fit, stay out of trouble, and really just try to save money and not spend a lot of money. So I just jokingly tweeted that I needed a job in Waco. Was anyone hiring?”

A Jimmy John’s employee responded to that tweet saying they were hiring, so Ganaway applied and was hired.

Ganaway also joked that when he has kids someday, he wants to tell them he had to work two jobs to get them through college.

With an attitude and work ethic like that, I suspect Ganaway will do well both as an NFL player and after his career is over. 

Bravo, sir.
