People Who Studied Abroad #163:
Myron Rolle, professional football player
Earned an M.Sc. in medical anthropology at St. Edmund Hall, Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar before entering the NFL draft. According to Wikipedia:
Rolle was named a finalist for one of the 32 Rhodes Scholarships awarded to Americans each year. His interview for the scholarship was originally scheduled at the same time as Florida State was to play at Maryland, in which Florida State defeated Maryland 37-3. The NCAA decided to allow Rolle to take a chartered plane from his interview in Birmingham, Alabama to College Park. He was awarded the scholarship less than three hours before the Florida State vs. Maryland game.
