There's an unspoken cliche that college athletes can't also be student campus leaders. Part of it is because of the time commitment, and part of it is because of the jock stereotype. But don't tell all of that to Georgetown's backup center Henry Sims. The junior center has put his name in the running for the Georgetown University Student Association vice president position, reports The Hoya, Georgetown's student newspaper.
Sims is the running mate of fellow junior Jed Feiman, who is running for president. As you can see above, you really couldn't script two more different kinds of people. However, Feiman says that's exactly why they should win.
"Henry and I are two student leaders from very different areas in the Georgetown community, and we've come together to unite the campus," Feiman said. "Our opponents remind us ...of the same GUSA candidates year after year, and we think we offer something new."
