Crockett Gillmore, TE, Baltimore Ravens stuck to his promises and graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in sociology this month.
“I knew I wanted to do it, and after my second year (in the NFL) I just had a plan to do it,” he said. “It was a little harder than I thought it would be, with injuries and rehabilitation and all, but I did it.”
Gillmore was selected in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft, just three classes shy of a degree. He was able to complete the remaining three online while simultaneously playing in the NFL, earning ranks with the top tight ends and even earning the affiliation of “Gronk-like hands”.
