Sean Nuernberger is officially taking his talents to law school.
The former Ohio State kicker announced Monday on social media that he is starting law school at the University of Cincinnati later this week.
Excited to say that I am starting law school at the University of Cincinnati this week. Ive had the time of my life in Columbus over the past 5 years, but am looking forward to this new chapter. I am still kicking (better than ever) and am certainly still waiting for the right NFL opportunity to open up. But, for now, catch me in the library!
While Nuernberger has been continuing to kick with the goal of playing professionally, he told Eleven Warriors in March that he would attend law school this fall unless he was on an NFL roster, and said he considered playing in the NFL and becoming a lawyer to be "two Plan A's."
“I’m ready to show up day one in August at law school to start that. And the only way I don’t do that is if I’m in a camp somewhere with a team,” Nuernberger said this spring. “So I’m putting stock in both, and I really truly believe that I can do either one.
“A lot of people ask, ‘Is it a letdown not to make the NFL?’ And I’m like, ‘If I work as hard as I can, give it my all and worst-case scenario I go become a lawyer, I’ve done fine,’” Nuernberger added. “So I’m just keeping a positive mindset, and it’ll work out one way or the other.”
