Before he was Sergeant Terry Jeffords on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Terry Crews attended Western Michigan University on a full ride scholarship for football. He was eventually drafted to the L.A. Rams in 1991. He retired from the NFL in 1997 to pursue acting.

The NCIS actor is the son of a former Heisman Trophy winner, and it looks like football runs in the family.  Harmon played for UCLA in 1972 and 1973 as the starting quarterback.  He graduated in 1974 with a degree in Communications.  

4. Dwayne Johnson

You may know him for his time in the WWE, but Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was also a college athlete. Johnson attended the University of Miami where he was a member of the football team in 1991. The team went on to win the national championship the same year. Johnson eventually turned his sights to professional wrestling, and the rest is history. You can see Johnson in Hercules: The Thracian Wars in July.  

5. Joel McHale

While he wasn’t the best member of the team, Joel McHale played football at the University of Washington. McHale was originally recruited for rowing but ended up joining the football team on a dare. He currently hosts The Soup and stars on Community which airs Thursdays at 8pm on NBC.
