Congratulations are in order for former NFL player, Dr. Myron Rolle who has recently graduated from medical school at Florida State University.

Even more impressive is that the recent graduate will be heading to Harvard University to specialize in neurosurgery and complete his residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital:

According to reports, Dr. Rolle, recalls the impact of brain damage injuries in contact sports such as football and is inspired to make a difference:

Toward the end of my career, I started to think about concussions and what the effects of repetitive concussions can do,” he said.

“Football has done so much for me, given me friends, family, given me life lessons that now I can use in the operating room or just as a leader,” he said.I would hate to see it go, and I would love to see it around.

Rolle, who was drafted to the Tennessee Titans and played college football while at Florida State University, put his career in sports on hold after becoming a Rhodes scholar, one of the most prestigious international scholarship programs.
