At Bowdoin, Wheeler found a home on the Ultimate frisbee team. He grew his hair out, wore shorts and flip flops all the time, even in the winter. He arrived freshman year skinny as a rail but returned sophomore year "absurdly buffed," putting on 20 pounds of muscle in the gym, friends said.
After his spring 2007 semester at Bowdoin (right), Wheeler was suspended for academic dishonesty.
