Graduation Day is always a big accomplishment for students and student-athletes. But what happens if your football team is flying to Virginia for your next playoff game?  Four graduation seniors from Sam Houston State found out that answer from 37,000 feet in the air. Check out the video (via @BearkatVid):

The four players, James DeLaRosa, Deon Hutchinson, Sione Latu, and Parker Murry all received their degrees as they walked down the aisle of the plane to be greeted by head coach K.C. Keeler and athletic director Bobby Williams. It was a unique graduation setup, but one that the players and athletic staff will not soon forget.

The undefeated Bearkats play at James Madison in the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs on Friday night.
