    #86 Gary Rolle (WR, 1982-1984) is among the most honored Gators ever — off the field. Gary transferred to Florida after a year at the prestigious U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He transferred in as a microbiology major and joined the football team as a walk-on in 1981. Gary was an SEC Academic Performer in 1983 and 1984, a 1984 Academic All-American, and he is one of only five Gator players awarded with the National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete Award (Darrell Carpenter ’76; Brad Culpepper, ’91, Michael D. Gilmore, ’94 and Danny Wuerffel, ’96). Gary was an 11th draft pick of the Denver Broncos, but he returned to Florida years later to study orthopedics in medical school, and again for his sports medicine residency. Although he is the FAMU football team orthopedist, he remains loyal to UF as a member of the Board of Directors of the University of Florida Foundation.
