The mother of Miami Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll is about to become Florida's Lieutenant Governor.||||||| Jennifer Carroll was chosen as Republican Rick Scott's running mate several months ago, and after one of the closest gubernatorial races in state history, they were declared winners Wednesday after Democrat Alex Sink conceded. Nolan Carroll says being with his mother on election night - even though the outcome was in some doubt - says "it was one of those things that you'll remember for the rest of your life."
Posted Sept. 06, 2010
Since being drafted by the Dolphins in April, Carroll has changed his mind and decided politics isn't in his future. He remains interested in a career as an NFL cornerback, however, and it will begin Sunday when the Dolphins open the season at Buffalo.||||||| Carroll's the son of Jennifer Carroll, chosen last week as the running mate to Florida's Republican gubernatorial nominee, Rick Scott. In 2003, she became the first black female Republican elected to the Florida Legislature, and if elected with Scott, she'll become the state's first black lieutenant governor. The younger Carroll, a fifth-round draft pick, survived the final cut with the Dolphins in part because of his versatility on special teams.
