A story from Livesteez highlights a young man that’s pursuing a Rhodes Scholarship instead of the NFL draft. Now, that’s something for kids to emulate:
Florida State safety Myron Rolle has chosen to opt out of the possibility to ink a hefty professional football contract, and will study at Oxford instead of entering this year’s NFL draft. Rolle plans to seek a one-year master’s degree in medical anthropology and take full advantage of a Rhodes scholarship he was awarded in November, The New York Times reported Monday in an entry on its college football blog. “I’m very excited to go,” Rolle wrote in a text message to the newspaper. Rolle, projected to be an early round pick, said he plans to enter the 2010 NFL draft. Rolle, from Galloway, N.J., got his undergraduate degree in pre-med after two and a half years, and has been taking graduate courses at Florida State this year, reports USAToday.com.
This intelligent young man is making a financial sacrifice to better himself. This is what the influence of President Obama is doing in our nation. Brothers in their teens, please take note.
