Rhodes Scholar, humanitarian, and former NFL player Myron Rolle will share his inspirational story 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28, in the SUB Ballrooms at Montana State University as part of the Year of Engaged Leadership.

Rolle is one of just a few American college football players to achieve at top levels both on the field and in the classroom. A starting safety for Florida State University, he delayed playing in the NFL for one year to accept a prestigious Rhodes scholarship and a year at Oxford where he earned a master’s degree in medical anthropology. Rolle was drafted in the sixth round by the Tennessee Titans during the 2010 NFL draft, making Rolle one of just three Rhodes Scholars to play in the NFL. Rolle is a member of the first year class at Florida State University Medical School, with ambitions of becoming a neurosurgeon.
