About Rashard Mendenhall

Rashard Mendenhall: The Running Back Who Defied Expectations

Rashard Mendenhall was born on June 19, 1987, in Skokie, Illinois. He grew up in a family of athletes, with his father being a former football player and his mother a former track and field athlete. Mendenhall started playing football at a young age and quickly showed his talent on the field.

In high school, Mendenhall was a star running back, leading his team to a state championship in his senior year. He was heavily recruited by colleges across the country and eventually chose to attend the University of Illinois.

During his time at Illinois, Mendenhall continued to impress, setting records and earning accolades. In his junior year, he rushed for over 1,600 yards and 17 touchdowns, earning him first-team All-Big Ten honors. He decided to forgo his senior year and enter the NFL draft.

Mendenhall was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the 2008 NFL draft. He quickly became a key player for the team, helping them win the Super Bowl in his second season. Mendenhall continued to play for the Steelers until 2012, when he signed with the Arizona Cardinals.

Off the field, Mendenhall was known for his introspective nature and his willingness to speak out on social issues. He caused controversy in 2011 when he tweeted his doubts about the official story of the 9/11 attacks. He later clarified his comments, saying that he was simply questioning the government's narrative and advocating for critical thinking.

In 2014, Mendenhall announced his retirement from football at the age of 26. He cited his desire to pursue other interests, including writing and filmmaking. He has since published a memoir, "The Free Agent," and worked as a staff writer on the HBO series "Ballers."

Mendenhall's career may have been short, but his impact on the game and his willingness to speak his mind have made him a memorable figure in football history.
