14 African American Game Changers That Started as Rhodes Scholars

- By

Myron Rolle

Rolle was a starting free safety on Florida State’s celebrated football team who was training for the NFL’s draft day when he decided to go a different route. That alternative route consisted of being awarded a Rhodes Scholarship where he enrolled in a master’s degree program in medical anthropology. After Rhodes, he was drafted by the Tennessee Titans. But still, Rolle’s ultimate goals remain off the field. Eventually, he wants to become a neurosurgeon and continue fulfilling his philanthropic duties as head of the Myron L. Rolle Foundation.
