ACADEMICS—He majored in Communication at Colorado and was on schedule to graduate in May 2010; he was planning to attend graduate school at another institution and play one more year of football..  In high school, he owned a 3.2 grade point average and was once a member of the International Baccalaureate program, an advanced curriculum designed to insure a cohesive, comprehensive education for students.
