Former NFL wide receiver Donte Stallworth took to Twitter recently to share an interesting stat on just how long the odds are for a prospective athlete dreaming about making it to the NFL.

During my playing days, coaches and advisers would always tell me to focus on getting my education, because statistically I had a better shot of winning the lottery or getting struck by lightning.

Stallworth takes it even further with his breakdown:

The low percentage makes it imperative for all college football players to focus on their education while they’re in school and it’s free.
