23 year old San Francisco running back, Glen Coffee , recently decided to retire from the NFL  and  go back to school to receive his Master’s Degree. He released a statement regarding his honorable decision,”

Actually when I look back I feel I never should have entered the draft in the first place,” said Coffee, who left the University of Alabama after his junior year. “Football was no longer my dream. I found Christ in college. It changed my views on everything. But I still was a football player because it was expected of me, it was something I did all my life. I was basically wasting the [49ers’] time.”

“His will, I felt, wasn’t football. I felt like I forced football because everyone expected me to play football. He told me a long time ago to walk away from the game.”
