If you are a fan of the Florida Gators or anyone who likes to see someone living out a dream, you have to love this video featuring former Gators standout Jelani Jenkins who has since gone on to play for the NFL’s Miami Dolphins.
Since finishing up his playing days at The Swamp, Jenkins has been working hard to balance school and the NFL.
Finally, this weekend, Jenkins was able to check another goal off of his list by finishing up his studies and receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Florida.
Jenkins participated in the graduation ceremony and Florida shared a video of the special moment:
In 2012, @jelanijenkins3 was making plays in #TheSwamp.
