BILLINGS -- Q2's Athlete of the Week doesn't want to lose his senior football season at Rocky Mountain College. Right now, that season is postponed to spring, but no matter how football turns out, Drew Korf has a solid backup plan.

"I want to be an entrepreneur," Korf told MTN Sports. "There's actually a project I'm working on called Atlas Wealth Education. I want to be able to teach young adults basic personal finance things that they weren't taught in school. If that doesn't work, then I just want to go into something with finance. Nerding out with numbers."

Two reasons Korf planted himself in Billings all summer: to stay sharp on the field and also in the business field.

"I'm actually working with a startup downtown called Moochdocker," he said. "It's like a peer-to-peer RV system, kind of like Airbnb. So, I'm doing some capital raise for them and then I'm working at Optima Capital Management, which is like an investing firm. Just trying to get all the experience I can."

Korf is not just working one summer job, but two, on his way out the door at Rocky.

The senior played his high school ball as a quarterback at Capital -- not in Helena, but rather Boise. He's been capable of producing some eye-popping numbers at Rocky.

But bank account numbers drive him now, and not just his own.

"It's just like a puzzle to solve, honestly," he said. "Sitting down and doing numbers for anything else kind of seems pointless. But being able to help people make their lives better and especially young adults, it seems like when I started to learn all these things, all my friends were like, 'Ah, that's over my head. I can't do it.' Just being able to simplify that so people can help themselves out a little bit younger is what I want to do."
