American football safety, special teamer, and rugby sevens player
Nate Ebner is a two-sport athlete who is the only person to ever compete in the Olympics as an active NFL player and then gone on to win a Super Bowl. He has won 3 Super Bowls with the New England Patriots and participated in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games as one of twelve members of the United States Rugby team, and now plays for the New York Giants. In his youth, Ebner bonded with his father through rugby. After Ebner tragically lost his father, he kept his promise to him to walk onto the football team at Ohio State and make it in the NFL. His memoir "Finish Strong" (written with Paul Daugherty) tells an astonishing story of what a father will do for a son and what a son will do for a father.
