Nate Ebner can now add being an Olympian to his resume.
The former Ohio State and New England Patriots defensive back was selected to the United States Rugby Team for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro taking place this summer.
Ebner was the youngest-ever player to represent the Men’s Sevens when he was 17 before taking up football at Ohio State. He was eventually drafted in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Patriots and was a member of New England’s Super Bowl 49 championship team. Ebner recorded 11 total tackles and recovered two fumbles during his four-year career.
The Super Bowl champion will get a chance to add more hardware to his trophy case this summer.
