Friday is a big day for Vince Young as he becomes the first member of his family to graduate from college.
The roller coaster ride that Young has been on since leading Texas to the National Championship hits a high spot as family and friends watch him officially awarded his degree in Youth and Community Studies.
For all of the drama (and missteps) his NFL career has encompassed, Young today takes a significant positive step in his life.
The ceremony is more than just a symbol of the classroom work he put in, it is also an example of the maturation of the man. Young told cbssports.com that he wasn’t sure how many family and friends would be on campus, but that number would include his father, who has been out of the picture for almost all of his life.
