Jets C Jonotthan Harrison is something of a Renaissance man.
The 27-year-old University of Florida product revealed to SNY's Jeane Coakley some of his varied interests.
Harrison said football came later in his life because he was simply too big to play in his youth. That put the sport on the back burner until around halfway through college, he said.
"College came around I still had the mentality of, 'Let me make sure to get a degree in college because I hear the NFL isn't guaranteed,' I heard it's tough to get into the NFL," he said. "So NFL was really my Plan B."
Harrison double-majored in anthropology and criminology. He said he would have pursued a career as a homicide detective had he not joined the NFL.
"I took a homicide course, I took a bunch of athropology courses, forensic classes," he said. "I thought this was something I would really enjoy."
Harrison, who joined the Jets last year after three seasons with the Colts, also has a background in music.
"Before football I was a big musician. Big into band, did a french horn for concert in marching band. All the formations, the hot suit, everything like that, and guitar for jazz band."
