Considering how many non-football fans in the world seem to like to make all football players out to be ignorant thugs, I like to post positive stories when I see them. This one is pretty awesome...
FSU safety Myron Rolle is a finalist to become a Rhodes scholar. That folks, is no small feat...period. It's an even more incredible achievement though considering it was done on the rigorous schedule of a college athlete.
Rolle is likely going to have to miss a game against Maryland later this month in order to attend the interviews in Birmingham. A tough choice, but no doubt the right one. Good luck to Rolle in his interview.
