WATERVILLE -- On a Colby College football team full of smart athletes, John Gilboy is one of the smartest.
A Saco native and graduate of Thornton Academy, Gilboy carries a 3.7 grade point average as a double major in Biochemisty and Classical Civilizations, two disciplines that usually don't go together.
"We have to do a language here at Colby. I took a few Latin courses, ended up taking some history courses, looked at my transcripts and thought 'I'm only three or four (classes) away. Why not give it a shot?" Gilboy said. "If you have a chance, you don't want to look back and say 'Well, I could've been a double major.' Just give it a go.
