John Cameron Urschel (born June 24, 1991) is a Canadian mathematician and retired professional American football guard and center.[1][2] He played college football at Penn State and was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Urschel played his entire NFL career with Baltimore before announcing his retirement on July 27, 2017, at 26 years old.

Urschel has bachelor's and master's degrees in mathematics from Penn State and is pursuing a Ph.D. in mathematics from MIT.[3][4] He has published peer-reviewed articles in mathematics.[5][6][7] He is an advanced stats columnist for The Players' Tribune.

Early life and education[edit]

Urschel was born in Winnipeg, Canada. His parents, John Urschel and Venita Parker, were a surgeon and an attorney respectively. He earned a bachelor's and master's in mathematics at Pennsylvania State University. While at Penn State, he was awarded the William V. Campbell Trophy, known as the "academic Heisman".

Urschel was selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL draft with the 175th overall pick. He played in 11 games, starting three, for the Ravens in 2014. He appeared in 16 games, starting seven, for the team in 2015.[9]

Retirement[edit]

On July 27, 2017, Urschel announced his retirement from the NFL after three seasons.[10][11] The Baltimore Sun reported that the JAMA study on the prevalence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in deceased players was a factor in Urschel's decision.[12]

Mathematics career[edit]

In 2015, Urschel co-authored a paper in the Journal of Computational Mathematics[13] titled "A Cascadic Multigrid Algorithm for Computing the Fiedler Vector of Graph Laplacians". It includes "a cascadic multigrid algorithm for fast computation of the Fiedler vector of a graph Laplacian, namely, the eigenvector corresponding to the second smallest eigenvalue."[14]

Urschel began a Ph.D. in mathematics at MIT in 2016,[15] focusing on spectral graph theory, numerical linear algebra, and machine learning.[16] On January 4, 2017, Urschel was named to Forbes' "30 under 30" list of outstanding young scientists. His Forbes biography states "Urschel has published six peer-reviewed mathematics papers to date and has three more ready for review. That's a respectable publication history for someone who only started pursuing their PhD at MIT this year. He's won academic awards for his math prowess. All this while playing guard for the Baltimore Ravens."[17][18]

Chess hobby[edit]

Urschel competed in the 2015 Pittsburgh Open finishing 12th place (tied for 9th) with 3.0 points (+2-1=2) in the Under 1700 rating section.[19]
