Also on Saturday, The Commercial Appeal ran an article about junior lineman Owen Worley attacking academics with the same tenacity as he does on the football field. With a 3.92 GPA, Worley plans to graduate with a business degree in May 2011 after only three years at Rhodes. Also, the article mentions that he plays bagpipes and five other instruments and that he has studied in Egypt. Football coach Joe White describes him as a relentless overachiever on and off the field.
