While it is the dream of student-athletes to play in the National Football League , the reality is that 99% will not attain this goal and instead may find themselves with a limited education and few opportunities. Aspiring youth need to be set up for success in life regardless of what happens on the field. Understanding and addressing this realism is why Hannibal Navies and Ray Lewis decided to create the 360 Football Academy . Our objective is to provide student-athletes a comprehensive year-round curriculum administered in collaboration with the most well respected and accomplished firms in both athletics and academics with the goal of our graduates thriving in college.
There's a reason Gary was a five-star recruit at the high school level; his athleticism is plenty freakish for a big man, and he showed it off during Michigan's spring testing this year. At 6-foot-5, 287 pounds, Gary turned in a 40-yard dash -- simply ridiculous for a man of his size -- and a 31-inch vertical jump. He also ran a time in the 3-cone drill, which would have led all defensive linemen at this year's NFL Scouting Combine. He made 27 tackles, five for losses, as a freshman last year. But those are modest numbers for a player of Gary's potential, and he could double that production as early as this fall. Yes, the Michigan coaching staff is expecting big things from him .
Greasy Neale is another person who gained fame in both sports but who is omitted from the list. Neale played eight years in Major League Baseball, mostly for the Cincinnati Reds , from 1916 to 1924.  He also played for the Dayton Triangles in 1918 before the NFL was established. He later served as the coach of the Philadelphia Eagles from 1941 to 1950 and has been inducted into both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame .   However, he never appeared as a player in an official NFL game and is therefore not included in the list. Bert Kuczynski is one of a very small number of athletes to play Major League Baseball and in the NFL in the same year. In his senior year at Penn Kuczynski was on the NBC/ Look Magazine 1942 All-American team as an end. After graduation in May 1943 he pitched in six games for the Philadelphia Athletics and played for the Detroit Lions in the 1943 NFL season. After two years in the Navy, in 1946 he played for the Philadelphia Eagles . While working on his Masters in Education at Penn, he was an assistant coach in the football program.
