*Myron Rolle, a former NFL safety with the Tennessee Titans, is now a third-year neurosurgery resident at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital who’s volunteering to treat COVID-19 patients.

Rolle, 33, says he always knew he wanted to be a neurosurgeon, even during his college football days at Florida State University. In 2008, during his junior year, he was named a Rhodes Scholar (where he got the opportunity to study at Oxford University on a full scholarship).
