Former Marine Sergeant Steven Rhodes made the ultimate sacrifice joining the military and while he was a member of the Marines he played "organized" football and that's where the problem starts. Once his time was up with his service he sent a highlight tape to Middle Tennessee State, who saw something in the young man, and he was offered a spot on the roster as walk-on but the NCAA being who they are ruled him ineligible. Their basis for the ruling was that he played organized football while enlisted despite the fact he only played in 12 games over 5 years and there was no real organization to the games he participated in aside from wearing uniforms and having officials on hand.
