oakley juliet Boston College WR Alex Amidon gives up football to pursue becoming a Navy SEAL (report) Alex Amidon (83) has posted 2,242 yards receiving over the last two seasons at Boston College. (Associated Press)Alex Amidon has posted more than 1,000 yards receiving in each of the last two years at Boston College -- 1,210 in 2012 and 1,032 last year -- and set school records for most single-season and career receiving yardage.A 6-foot, 182-pounder with speed in the 4.5 range, his future in football beyond college was far from certain -- he was as the No. 54 receiver available in May's NFL draft. But he had a shot to get drafted in the latter rounds or at least be invited to camp as a free agent.While odds may have been long for even a player as productive as Amidon to make an NFL club and earn his living playing professional football, Amidon has chosen what may be an even more difficult path.According to, SBNation's Boston College site, Amidon has decided to give up football and enter training to become a U.S. Navy SEAL.The odds of him actually becoming one may be tougher than making the NFL. There are only about 2,600 SEALs and their Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training carries a 60 percent dropout rate, -- some reports put it closer to 70 percent.Amidon won't be the only player who ever dropped football for the military. left the NFL after a year with the San Francisco 49ers and later went to U.S. Army Airborne school.Perhaps the most famous example is Pat Tillman, who retired in his prime as a successful safety with the Arizona Cardinals to join the Army in June 2002. He was killed in Afghanistan in 2004.
