Drafted in the 6th round by the Tennessee Titans back in 2010 after a stellar career at Florida State, former safety Myron Rolle announced Friday he was accepted for a neurosurgery residency at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital.

Although he never played a professional snap in the NFL, Myron deferred an NFL career for a year to obtain a master’s degree in medical anthropology at the University of Oxford. In 2013, he returned to Tallahassee and entered FSU’s medical school. Rolle’s residency begins July 1.

“Seven years of neurosurgery is a big deal, something I wanted for a long time, really excited about it. Today is just great, it’s remarkable,” Rolle told WCTV in Tallahassee on Friday. “… Saving lives and helping people live a better life, that’s going to make life worth living.”
