    Congratulations, Quinton. And congratulations to the other athletes mentioned in this article. As much as we (the athletes and fans) all enjoy collegiate athletics, the education is truly what is most important.

    Thank you for your contributions, and good luck in your respective futures.

    Terrific accomplishment. Kudos to Mr. Ganther for returning after playing in the NFL to get his degree. Many don't and 100% of them regret it at some point. Good for the U for whatever assistance they offered in helping Ganther, Ellis and any others who return. It shows they truly care for them and not just when they have eligibility.

    Good job, Mr. Ganther. I know about Richmond--I live right across the Bay from it. Those who don't get trapped, who stay out of prison, live past age 19 or 20 and go on to lead productive lives, are very blessed and fortunate. Thank you for whatever you can do to help other young people.

    Congratulations to all of the young men who received degrees. And a special congratulations to Jiggy for sticking it out in the classroom even after his basketball days at the U came to an end. So happy that he valued the accomplishment of getting his degree. Terrific work all.
