Monday Night Football Dropped Marshawn Lynch’s High School Picture and He Does Not Look Like the Same Man
So during the Monday Night Football broadcast last night, they started talking about Marshawn Lynch and how he grew up around the area. Typical grabass stuff going on during primetime football. I mean, you just aren’t going to get that kind of content on your local broadcast. And while they’re talking about Marshawn growing up right around the stadium and how close his high school was, they dropped this dime on us with a picture of the beast in back in the day.
Hello @ESPNNFL we just wanted to say thank you for giving us one of the greatest moments in Monday Night Football history. pic.twitter.com/ouyQu7NN0N

I’m not going to lie, this was jawing. I had no idea how to react. Look, I’m not sure what his grades were in school. He could have been one hell of a student, I have no idea. But if you want to make your judgments based off of this one image, then God damn Lynch was Albert Einstein 2.0.
I’m not here to make jokes. Did you think this was going to be a light-hearted, little haha blog? Absolutely not. I would never make a “Steve Urkel” joke here. I would NEVER even hint at the mere possibility of Lynch being a high school nerd. Maybe I would say, “Brainiac in the class but a freak on the grass”. I don’t know. Just some possibilities. But I would never insult this guy in any sort of way.
Generally, ESPN’s primetime broadcasts are brutal. If you follow me on Twitter you know that their Sunday Night Baseball booth makes me want to dive head first off of the Green Monster. But this pulled me in a little bit only because the content was spectacular. What a turn of events for Marshawn. Nobody expected that to be what he looked like in high school.
He also apparently won the most likely to go pro superlative. Good call. Remember that video from last year where he was trucking high school kids? Laugh out loud funny.
