Sam Houston State football players graduate from the sky

Football players from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville graduated Thursday while aboard a flight to their game in Virginia.

The graduation ceremony for the four Bearkat seniors was captured and shared on YouTube. The video was also shared on the official Bearkat Athletics Facebook page.

The team was traveling to Harrisonburg to play James Madison University on Friday,  so the players were going to miss their weekend graduation ceremony.

The team is aiming to make their third consecutive national semifinals appearance.
