The Best Football Move Made Off the Field

Posted on April 23, 2013 at 10:59 PM
Would you give up a pro football career to go back to school after you already obtained a bachelors degree? I don't know many people who would--until now.

Mryon Rolle, former Florida State University safety, has made the decision to leave the National Football League to go back to school and pursue a medical degree. Rolle, who is retiring from the league--yes, retiring from the league--at the age of 26, has expressed an interest in becoming a neurosurgeon.

This doesn't come as too much of a surprise, though. After receiving the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship during his senior year in college, Rolle took a year off of football to study at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. This move was an indication that he was more interested in what his mind could do than what his body could.

He might not have been an uber-star on the football field during his time with the Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers, but he gets mega psychological kudos for making this move. Very few people know how difficult it is to drop what you know and do something totally new because they don't do it. As people, we tend to stick to what we know, even if it isn't working for us or even if we aren't happy, to avoid failure, rejection and negative feelings like fear and anxiety. Remember that this man has a paycheck rolling in every two weeks, and he has decided that getting paid isn't as important as fulfilling his calling.

It's clear that Rolle probably won't be the typical broke student. Hopefully, he has saved a considerable amount of his football income, and he will probably receive a full scholarship to hmmm any medical school in America (my vote is for Temple University Medical School). However, this is still a risky, ballsy move.

It's a breath of fresh air to see someone who recognizes his own potential and refuses to sell himself short. Most people wouldn't consider playing in the NFL "selling oneself short." However, if you have the intelligence of a neurosurgeon and the skills to match, you should be a neurosurgeon, not a safety in the NFL.

Wonder how fulfilled we would all be if, like Rolle, we gave up the safety position and started tackling our true calling?

Absolutely thrilled to have featured this story. Myron Rolle has made a lot of little boys think about life beyond the field (or life without a field at all).
