Former Cal QB Joe Ayoob sets paper airplane world record (Video)

Former University of California quarterback Joe Ayoob had an unremarkable two-year career as a fill-in starter and backup for the Golden Bears.

He went undrafted in the 2007 NFL draft and went on to play for the Central Valley Coyotes and Tri-Cities Fever in the Arena Football League’s developmental league.

But it turns out football was not the 27-year-old’s true calling. Older and wiser, Ayoob has no realized his potential — by throwing paper airplanes.

Recently Ayoob set a new world record by using his big arm to chuck a John Collins design paper airplane 226 feet, 10 inches.

Well done, Joe. We always knew you had it in you.
