Steven Rhodes is a 24-year-old Marine sergeant. He finished his five-year commitment to the armed forces this summer and called up Middle Tennessee State’s football coaches and asked if they had a spot for him as a walk-on, according to Yahoo Sports.



The site reports the coaches happily accepted the 6-foot-3 veteran and have been using him as a tight end and defensive lineman during practice.

Great story, right?

Well, it would be. Yahoo Sports reports Rhodes isn’t eligible to play this season because he took part in an intramural league while in the service.
