Video: Marshawn Lynch Shares Lesson In Asking for Help, Hilarious Story on Honorary Degree

Videos by OutKick

Marshawn Lynch is one of the most interesting characters in the NFL. The former All-Pro running back is mostly quiet, but he’s still willing to share insightful — and occasionally funny — thoughts and answers during interviews.

That was once again evident when Lynch joined Conan O’Brien on TBS earlier this month. The longtime Seattle Seahawk shared a few personal stories, including his struggles with learning throughout his life.

“From elementary school all the way through Cal, I’ve been in special resource programs,” Lynch shared. “It wasn’t until about high school when I finally got it. Like, man, f–k that. I’m fixing to go ask for help.

“Once I put all that ‘you stupid, you got ADD, you got ADHD, you got all this’ … man, alright cool. Hey, can you help me? And once I figured out that ‘can you help me,’ then everything else was just smooth sailing, to keep it solid with you.”

It’s really cool to see Lynch being vocal about asking for help. There’s nothing wrong with it, and it obviously helped the Super Bowl champ get where he’s wanted to go.

The best part of his answer was him laughing about how far he has come: “Now it’s to the point where I got an honorary degree from Princeton.”

Lynch and all of his diplomas are a national treasure and should be protected at all costs.

  1. It’s funny watching this typical “ultra white liberal” interview Marshawn who is the poster child for illiteracy as if he is really interested in what Marshawn has to say. Marshawn can’t speak 3 words without using profanity.
