Xavier's Matt Stainbrook is a talented guy
Xavier's Matt Stainbrook is a talented guy.
Not only did the senior help lead the Musketeers to the Sweet 16 during the NCAA tournament while spending the year as an Uber driver, he's not done with his college athletics career despite basketball season being over.
The 6'10" center decided to take up a new sport while he waits for a shot at the NBA: track & field. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Stainbrook had never participated in a field event before last month but will compete in the Big East Track & Field Outdoor Championship this weekend.
"I like to do different things. I'm a Renaissance man," Stainbrook told the Enquirer. "Especially because it keeps me in shape, keeps me busy."
While Stainbrook's schedule seems packed between finishing school, preparing for a chance at the NBA and participating in track & field, rest assured that if you're in the Cincinnati area you could still wind up with him as your Uber driver—he told the Enquirer he still works for the company four nights a week.
