Fred Rouse to appear on ESPN - Watch live interview

Dec 13, 2009

Fred Rouse is all set to appear on ESPN show in order to investigate and look into the academic standards in the sports department at FSU.

Outside the lines by ESPN will telecast today its report based on the interview with Brenda Monk, a former academic adviser at FSU, who is now suing the university. The show will air interviews with at least 2 former FSU football players, Fred Rouse and Paul Griffin.

Fred Rouse, a Lincoln High graduate was dismissed from FSU after playing just one semester. He was suspended for multiple games during that season, for what the university reported as a violation of team rules at that time.

The academic standards for college football players are as high as they are for the rest of the student body. A contention is as absurd as to be ridiculous. The reason why Ivy League schools don’t play other colleges is because they insist upon the academic standards first and then comes the sports ability.

Fred Rouse who celebrates his birthday on December 17, is 6 feel 4 inches tall and weighs 190 lbs. He is the first player in the history to directly advance to NFL straight after the High School level. As per his projection he falls in the 4th round pick.

On January 20, 2009, Bobby Bowden, FSU head coach had announced that Rouse and offensive lineman Cornelius Lewis will kick off the game for conduct detrimental to the welfare of the football team. He added that he was very athletic, blessed with speed, ability and often compared with Randy Moss.

In 2006, he was in the starting lineup against Penn State at the Orange Bowl.
