Noah Furbush is not like most football players, or most people for that matter. The Michigan linebacker earned his degree in aerospace engineering and is now working towards a master’s in space engineering (a natural progression, I suppose, but still darn impressive). Furbush wants to use his education and his love of flying to become a military pilot.
