The reason Stacy isn't at camp doesn't have anything to do with an injury, but he was chasing another dream. Stacy "graduated" on Friday.
Fifth-round draft pick RB Zac Stacy not at Rams rookie minicamp Friday because he is graduating this weekend at Vanderbilt.— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) May 10, 2013
Rams running back Zac Stacy wasn't at rookie minicamp today. Excused absence so he could attend Vanderbilt graduation.— Ben Frederickson (@Ben_Fred) May 10, 2013
He technically graduated in 3.5 years with a degree in education, but it seems like he wanted to finish his career at Vanderbilt, before he started his NFL career. Football players get a bad reputation, but when a player walks across the graduation stage, it shouldn't just be looked over.
So, congratulations Mr. Stacy. You made your mother proud. So celebrate and have a good time, just don't forget about your new job with the Rams.
Just gave my mama the best MOTHERS DAY GIFT... A Degree.— Zac Stacy (@Z_ST2CE) May 10, 2013
