Marine fighting for eligibility to play for MTSU this season


Steven Rhodes felt a duty to serve his country and had a dream to play football. But now, to his surprise, one is hindering the other in the peculiar case of the United States Marine and 24-year-old MTSU freshman football player versus the NCAA. Not long after arriving on campus, Rhodes was told that his participation in a military-only recreational football league in 2012 would hinder his immediate eligibility to play Division I college football, per an NCAA rule.
