Often sam can be found sitting on in chabad learn gemora.
He has finished many mesachtas and one day he will finish shas whilst learning from the locker room.

you can do it almost all the games are not played on Shabbos and it will be amazing to have a openly Jewish player playing in the NFL just up your game and you might have a chance

Unfortunately not true in college

Not the first one

He’s not the first. Yonatan marmour was the first jewish orthodox college football player. Another jewish QB currently playing zevi eckhaus from Bryant university but I don’t think he’s religious (but his family is religious)
One more Alex swieca another orthodox guy was the 3rd QB of Michigan university from 2012-2014 but never played any game.
Get your facts next time.
