You could call Marshawn Lynch the anti-Richard Sherman -- the Seahawks star running back is barely tolerating the media attention during Super Bowl Week.

On Tuesday, he lasted about 6.5 minutes at Media Day. On Wednesday, he almost made it a full 7 minutes before teammate Michael Robinson jumped in to help.

Lynch does actually open up occasionally. He spoke recently with Mike Silver from NFL.com, a fellow Cal grad that Marshawn trusts. And Lynch provided some powerful insights on his life.

"My lowest point came growing up when we were trying to figure out what we were gonna eat at night. My lowest point came when I'd wash my jeans at night," he said. "And hopefully they were dry by morning so I wouldn't have to go to school in wet jeans."

There is a whole other side to Lunch that much of the national media doesn't know about because he doesn't open up often, but because he's from Oakland, many Bay Area sports fans do.
