Myles Crosby, seen in an ad for Calvin Klein, turned down a modeling career to play football at SMU. / Calvin Klein advertisement

According to The Dallas Morning News, Colleyville (Texas) Heritage High School senior Myles Crosby has "high cheekbones, a chiseled jawline and a head of neatly slicked light brown hair." Crosby is a model, you see ?? and a bit of a star in the profession, ranked by Models.com as the 11th-best male model in the world.

David Just of the Morning News says of Crosby: "At 17 he became one of the youngest stars in the industry and posed in Calvin Klein ads for jeans, underwear and the Euphoria fragrance. He has graced the pages of Esquire, GQ and Vanity Fair, to name only a few."

But Crosby also plays a little football, leaving the 18-year-old with a tough decision: Should he continue a potential lucrative modeling career or pursue a career in football?

Modeling is a good career (I would think), not to mention a profession just slightly less dangerous than a career spent playing football. As you might expect, folks are coming out of the woodwork to give Crosby their two cents.

"I'm told I'm so stupid by every single person," Crosby told the Morning News. "That every single person in my shoes should drop out of school now and go make the money."

But the money can wait, Crosby decided. On Wednesday, the two-star safety prospect put modeling on hold and signed a letter of intent to SMU.

"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."

One can only imagine that Crosby will immediately become one of the more popular SMU student-athletes with the school's female student body.

"The stereotypical model is a lot softer than I am," Crosby said. And Crosby can always model on the side while at SMU, not to mention pick up that career after graduation ?? barring any football-related injury, knock on wood.
