Fayetteville, Ark.- The offer of an athletic scholarship to a prestigious college institution is a dream for many. The ability to see that dream through to completion by earning a college degree, while playing at the highest level of competition at the amateur level, is inspirational.

On Saturday 52 University of Arkansas student-athletes earned their college degrees. Of the 19 Division I sports the Razorbacks award athletic scholarships for, 17 individual Arkansas athletic teams saw at least one member of their squad complete their collegiate journey.

Of the 52 college graduates to receive their diploma, 11 members of the Arkansas Razorback football team took home an award not earned on the field of play.
