LAURENT TARDIFF BIOGRAPHY

Laurent Tardiff is one of the most unique players in the NFL today, known not only for his prowess on the football field but also for his exceptional academic achievements. A talented offensive lineman for the Kansas City Chiefs, Duvernay-Tardif is also a practicing medical doctor. His ability to balance a demanding professional sports career with rigorous medical studies has earned him the moniker “the most interesting man in the NFL” from the Kansas City Star.

Laurent Tardif’s professional football career began when the Kansas City Chiefs selected him in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. This made him just the tenth player from a Canadian university to be drafted into the NFL. By his second season, he had secured a starting position as the right guard, and his contributions were instrumental in the Chiefs’ victory in Super Bowl LIV. His impact on the field is matched by his off-field dedication, as he has seamlessly blended his dual careers in sports and medicine.

Duvernay-Tardif’s academic journey is as impressive as his athletic one. He played college football at McGill University in Canada, where he also attended medical school. In May 2018, he achieved one of his greatest accomplishments by graduating with a doctorate in medicine. His commitment to medicine was further demonstrated during the COVID-19 pandemic when he volunteered his medical expertise to assist in long-term care facilities in Montreal. For his efforts, he was made a Knight of the Order of Quebec in 2019.

Throughout his career, Laurent has been an advocate for balancing multiple passions. He frequently shares his philosophy of maintaining a balance between sports, arts, and studies with young people. His passion for encouraging youth led him and his longtime girlfriend Florence to co-found the Laurent Tardiff Foundation in 2017. The foundation’s mission is to promote physical activity, arts, and education among children, reflecting his belief in a well-rounded and balanced lifestyle.

Duvernay-Tardif’s skills extend beyond football and medicine. He is an avid sailor, having spent many summers as a camp counsellor, and is a fan of contemporary art. His diverse interests and charismatic personality make him a sought-after speaker. He often delivers talks on achieving balance in life and pursuing multiple passions, inspiring many with his unique story and multifaceted career.

For those interested in having Laurent Tardiff share his insights and experiences, Whether for a webinar, video conference, or virtual keynote, his inspiring journey from the football field to the medical field offers valuable lessons in dedication, resilience, and the pursuit of excellence across multiple domains.

Le Docteur

THEPLAYERS TRIBUNE

It was a late night in the ER at Montreal General, when two police officers walked in with a suspect in cuffs. One of the officers had suffered a bad gash on his arm while making the arrest and needed stitches. Fortunately this was a simple job — and one I was happy to perform. As a medical student, suturing simple wounds is one of my skills in the emergency department. I always welcome the opportunity to practice fine dexterity with my huge hands.

  • In July 2020, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif sent shockwaves through the sports world by becoming the first NFL player to opt out of the upcoming season during the global pandemic.

    As plans for the 2020 NFL season ramped up and daily cases of COVID-19 continued to skyrocket, Duvernay-Tardif, a fixture on the offensive line of the Kansas City Chiefs, stepped away from the game he loved. Not only a professional athlete, Duvernay-Tardif is also a medical school graduate. He withdrew when he realized that continuing to play — and potentially spreading the virus — was antithetical to everything he believed in. For the first time in his remarkable career, Duvernay-Tardif couldn’t reconcile his twin passions of football and medicine, and with his team’s Super Bowl win only months behind him, he found himself on the front lines of the pandemic, working in a long-term care facility in Quebec.

    But that was just the beginning of the story. As Duvernay-Tardif settled into his new reality, he quickly came up against a severe COVID outbreak in his hospital unit. Meanwhile, his team, the Kansas City Chiefs, entered the playoffs as the favourites to repeat as champions in a season that saw countless games postponed due to league-wide outbreaks, including one on his own offensive line.

    From the incredible highs of winning the Super Bowl to the burnout of working as an orderly, Duvernay-Tardif shares his remarkable personal story. He details how his insatiable curiosity and solid work ethic led him from his family’s bakery in Montreal to becoming one of the most fascinating and accomplished people in professional sports.
