Myles Crosby, Male Model, Chooses College Football Over Possible Six-Figure Contract

By Jose Martinez, Complex Sports

If you had to choose between furthering you're already established modeling career or competing in college football, which one would you choose? That was the dilemma facing Myles Crosby. As the 11th best model in the world, according to, the 17-year-old high school senior out of Colleyville, Texas could've easily secured a six-figure contract if he chose to become a full-time model. Instead, the 6-foot-3, 205-pound Crosby signed a letter of intent to play defensive back at SMU

While in college, Crosby plans on studying film with the hopes of directing after he graduates. But don't feel sympathy for Myles because it looks like he has his head in the right place. “I have a passion for football and I want an education,” Crosby said. “This modeling crap could only last another year and then I’d have no education and never get to play football. I’d regret it for the rest of my life.”
