Rookie Rolle Donates for Flood Relief

Rhodes scholar and Titans rookie Myron Rolle hasn’t signed his NFL contract yet. That isn’t stopping him from making donations to help Tennessee flood victims.

Rolle presented a pair of $1,000 donations Tuesday to the Tennessee Emergency Response Fund and the Metro Nashville Disaster Response Fund. The money came from the foundation he started in January 2009 after playing his final game at Florida State and before heading to England for his studies.

The safety lasted until the final pick of the sixth round of the NFL Draft. He says he wants to help his new town.

Rolle says he’s “not rich” and he is “not crazy wealthy.” He says “it’s very pertinent to help in a community” and that “this is my first way of doing so.”

This right here is just the tip of the iceberg for the many reasons why I wanted us to draft this man.  Obviously being a Rhodes Scholar he has intellect that can transfer to the field but he also possesses a heart that truly enjoys giving to others.  Not just exampled here but also in the fact that after football he wishes to be a brain surgeon specializing in children, do i need to say anything more?  I for one certainly cannot wait to see the life and career of Myron Rolle unveil before my eyes.
