This doctor has one of the most important jobs in Super Bowl LIV, but he’s not part of the team’s medical staff.

Instead, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, who earned his doctor of medicine degree from McGill University in Canada in 2018, plays right guard on the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line. He is tasked with protecting superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes as well as trying to deliver the Chiefs their first Super Bowl win in 50 years.

Duvernay-Tardif, 28, stands at 6 feet, 5 inches and is listed at 321 pounds. When he speaks English, the Montreal native’s French accent is evident while also giving a warm smile.
“I think I want people to see me as one of the best student athletes in the world,” said Duvernay-Tardif, in his sixth NFL season and in the midst of a five-year, $42.4 million contract. “Of course you want to be the best football player. You want to be the best doctor. But to be able to combine both at the highest level … I think that’s my biggest accomplishment.”
