In just a couple of short years, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has become one of the best in the NFL, and he has made his team into a Super Bowl contender that has a bright future.
When he was in high school, he also played basketball, and as a point guard, he earned first-team All-State honors during his senior season.
With some downtime before the start of training camp for the 2023 season, Burrow tried his hand at yet another sport, and he didn’t do too badly.

Burrow started out his college football career at Ohio State University, and after barely getting onto the field there, he transferred to Louisiana State University, where he blossomed big-time.
As a senior with LSU, he threw for 5,671 yards and an FBS-record 60 touchdowns, leading the Tigers to the national championship and completing what may have been the greatest season in college football history.
Late in his rookie season with the Bengals, Burrow faced serious adversity when he tore both the ACL and MCL in his right knee.
But he rebounded well, playing in 16 games in 2021 and leading the NFL by completing 70.4 percent of his pass attempts while leading Cincinnati to the Super Bowl.
Although they lost there to the Los Angeles Rams and to the Kansas City Chiefs in last season’s AFC Championship Game, they have lots of optimism for this fall.
They will have an upgraded offensive line thanks to tackle Orlando Brown Jr., and perhaps they have simply paid their dues enough at this point to finally win it all.NEXT: Fans React To What Tyler Boyd Said About Last Year's AFC Championship Game
