His physical stats are strong because of his extreme amount of training. His mental stats suffer from the time he has dedicated to training his body. There is not an emphasis on mental activities from his family or the school.

He is majoring in physical therapy & hoping to get certifications as a mechanic through his non-core shop coarses so his class schedule is mostly physical education classes and various shop classes as his electives. His time in the auto machining shop & his love of cars explains his Driving & Mr. Fix-It stats. He has passed biology with heavy help from tutors & teachers who are told to make sure he passes his classes so he can play football. For his part, he is not super-intelligent (effective intelligent of 1), but he puts forth the effort to try to pass classes without a "sports player" curve being given to him.

His Attractiveness score & his natural hard working attitude are how I think he comes by his Influence of 2.

He belongs to the Epsilon Alpha fraternity. He was told early in his freshman year by Rich the football team captain that EA was the frat most sports team members end up joining (if they join a frat). A lot the other players joined so he did as well.

The coach notices that Brick has a seemingly infinite stamina & is experimenting with placing him in several positions on the team. (It explains Athlete, Jock, & high Sports skill.) This has made him pay attention better as he has watched how both offense & defense groups on the team work so he got a Notice skill boost. The coach found his dexterity surprising considering his size so he recommended that Brick take martial arts lessons do further develop his speed. Brick has taken Hasselhofian Jui-Jitsu for the last year. (I'm using this to explain Pugilist & Natural Toughness as well as his skills in Acrobatics & Kung Fu.) This training has also brought out his already competitive nature (explaining his Mental Problem with competition & Show-off). This along with his normal football training has made him in top form physically. (I'm using these to explain Fast Reaction Time & Quick Reflexes.)
