Not Your Typical Football Player

This story has been circulating for a couple of months now. As I was recently reminded that not everyone follows NCAA Football news the way that I do, so I thought that I would share the story with those of you that haven't heard it. Myron Rolle is a football player at Florida State University, a sure-fire early NFL draft pick, and Rhodes Scholar! Rolle has announced that he is going to sit out the NFL draft and go to Oxford instead. In the video below Myron Rolle discusses his future on CNN.

In this video you hear Myron Rolle discuss why he is choosing Oxford over the NFL. This interview could open the eyes of students who think that athletics is the only reason to go to college or that athletics is the only way to success.
