In the week since Seminole safety Myron Rolle became a Rhodes Scholar, numerous articles have been written about his accomplishment. Through the many voices of both the blogosphere and the mainstream media, it is apparent Rolleâ€™s achievement has transcended FSU and the sporting world and has quickly become one of the best individual accomplishments of 2008 at any level. Here is a sample of the various points of view people have taken on Myron Rolle:
Gregg Doyle of CBS Sportsline thinks Rolle should get at least one Heisman vote for his accomplishments.
Here is a post that discusses Myron’s effect as a role model for younger African-Americans.
Another African-American blogger gives Rolle his “props”.Â
One of the local newspapers from Rolle’s home state of New Jersey covers the story from their angle.
An Australian writer compares his “inadequate” life to Myron Rolle.
An American blogger does the same.
In case you were curious as to who else won a Rhodes Scholarship this year.
There are probably many more voices out there talking about Myron, and I will add to this post as I get a chance, butÂ for now I have a game to watch. Feel free to add some of your favorite articles about Myron Rolle in the comments.
