Joseph has a 3.46 cumulative GPA and is majoring in Graphic Design. Joseph’s academic goals for 2013-2014? “To get a 3.7 GPA for both semesters my senior year,” says Rollins.

As for football, Rollins looks for his senior year to be his best year yet. As a team, he’s sure McDaniel will win the Conference and then National Championship in their division. For personal goals, Joseph as set the bar at 2013 yards rushing and 5 kick or punt returns for touchdown.

Team Lloyd Irvin continues to support Joseph, many of the students and instructors attend his Saturday games throughout the season. Sticking to his martial arts upbringing, Joseph has considered entering Mixed Martial Arts if his health upholds. Although, Joe isn’t 100% sure about that, he’s got quite a few options after college.

Rollins said, “I’m not sure exactly what route I’ll be taking. Professional football or MMA if I can stay healthy. Graduate school is an option, I would go for my Masters in Deaf Education. Maybe start a graphic design business. My last resort would be the Air Force. I have options, so I’m excited no matter what.”
