Most people never get the opportunity to be a Rhodes Scholar or NFL football player. Myron Rolle became both. At the same time that he was asked to study at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, he was also being pursued by the NFL draft as a 1st or 2nd round pick with the chance to make millions of dollars. He chose to study at Oxford, and then went onto play professional football. He did not make millions of dollars, but he made enough to put himself through medical school and is now a neurosurgeon. Rolles found a way to bring both of his passions to life.
