Myron Rolle Earns Second Team Academic All American

Congrats to Myron for adding another academic award and demonstrating how great a student athlete he is.

But doesn't anyone think that it's a little odd that a Rhode Scholar is a 2nd Team Academic All-American. (His selection to the the Rhode Scholarship occurred after his nomination for Academic All American.)

Here's some of the criteria to get nominated:

- To be nominated, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) at his/her current institution. 
-  Nominated athletes must have participated in at least 50 percent of the team’s games at the position listed on the nomination form (where applicable). In baseball and softball, pitchers must have at least 10.0 innings pitched. Athletes who have not participated in at least 50 percent of their team’s contests are not eligible.

-  Nominees in graduate school must have a cumulative GPA of 3.30 or better both as an undergrad and in grad school.


Here is Myron's info: He graduated in 2 1/2 years with a degree in exercise physiology and was pre-med and had a 3.57 GPA. He is completing his Masters in Public Administration. He recently was awarded a $4,000 grant for cancer research. He teaches 5th grade Seminole Indian children about healthy lifestyles. He tutors, has studied abroad and has written for the New York times.

Anyone else confused?

He also won the Lott Trophy Impact Player of the Week.
