Congrats to our new alumni!
 
Congrats to our newest alumni:
A.J. Cann
Ryland Culbertson
Bruce Ellington
Aldrick Fordham
Sharrod Golightly
Ronald Patrick
David Wilkins

I can't believe that Bruce graduated in 3 1/2 years playing both bball and football. Also, Golightly and Cann graduated with one more year of eligibility! As alums, are these 3 allowed to bitch about the coaches next year?

You left off Connor Shaw...

And yes, they are allowed!

Bruce was able to get two more "BRUUUUUUUUCE"s out of the crowd. I think the announcement of Connor Shaw, as he walked up to get his diploma, caught a lot of the crowd off guard.

This makes me so proud of these guys.

There's more to life than football, even if you make it in the NFL.

Well done!

No. They are still part of the team, and thereby are still bound by the same rules as everyone else.

He truly is. All of Berkeley County, Gamecock and Tiger alike, are proud of him.

I copied and pasted the football grads from the Gamecocks online website, but you are right Connor is pictured with the grads but his name was omitted.

Thanks for posting this thread. It points out another strong component of our program - making a big difference in the lives of young men. I think it also shows that redshirting can help the player both on and off the field.

All student athletes who graduated yesterday.

Also according to GamecocksOnline on twitter, Shaw walked yesterday but officially receives his diploma upon completion of an internship.
