Hero Material

Looking for a good guy to base your next romance novel hero on? Check out Myron Rolle.

Florida State safety Myron Rolle will study at Oxford instead of entering this year's NFL draft.

Rolle won a Rhodes scholarship in November and plans to seek a one-year master's degree in medical anthropology, The New York Times reported Monday in an entry on its college football blog.

Giving up a chance at the NFL draft so he can study at Oxford? Dude, that rocks. He also got his undergrad degree in two and a half years, and has been working on cancer research this year. He plans to enter the NFL draft in 2010, after he's finished his master's degree.

You go, Myron.

So that's what the headline was about. It was football so I ignored it, but it was enough to catch my eye. Very, very cool.
