Gardner Minshew of the Jacksonville Jaguars has always been careful with his cash.
The 23-year-old rookie quarterback “is known for not spending any money,” his mother recently told the WSJ.
After one of the biggest games of his college career, the 2018 Alamo Bowl, when he led Washington State to a win over Iowa State, Minshew, like all college players competing in the prestigious bowl games, received a $700 travel stipend to get home for the holiday break.
Rather than spending it on a flight home to Brandon, Mississippi, “Minshew got thrifty, pocketing the money and hitching a ride with a few Brandon-bound buddies who’d made the trip to San Antonio to watch him play,” the Spokesman-Review reported this year.
Minshew thrifty magic.
