Among the 57 student-athletes graduates are national and conference champions.

  1. My 17 year old just asked me who is Mike Doss. I told him he was a great leader of our team who decided to come back his senior year and lead our team to a great season and a win against one of the best teams ever in Miami and you were in your mother’s belly when we were celebrating in Arizona. Thanks Mija for the great memories and congratulations on your great degree. It is a great feeling. I know that for sure.

  2. Congrats Mike, and thanks for coming back to help win that NATTY!

  3. Good to see a couple of engineering degrees from the football team other than family resource management degrees.

  4. Oh. Is that what they go to college for?
    Congratulations to those with degrees! They are doing it right.
