While he stands tall as one of the NFL’s best young quarterbacks, Jalen Hurts can also show pride in what he’s been able to accomplish in the classroom.

Hurts recently walked the graduation stage at the University of Oklahoma, where he finished his college playing career, with a master’s degree in human relations.

Hurts got a big cheer from the crowd as he accepted his master’s diploma after years of hard work off the field to earn it.

It’s just impressive to be able to take your team to a Super Bowl and finish an advanced degree in the same year.

The quarterback also earned a major contract extension this offseason, cementing what a special year it’s been for Hurts.

Any NFL player who pursues more education after starting their professional career deserves a lot of praise. Hurts has accomplished a ton since joining the NFL as a second-round draft pick in 2020, and he now has a master’s degree to add to his impressive list of achievements.

While a Super Bowl ring and an MVP honor are all possibilities, Hurts can also pursue a doctorate one day if he wants. Talk about an exciting list of things the former Oklahoma quarterback can still achieve.
