The St. Louis Rams started camp Friday, and will continue for the rest of the weekend. Zac Stacy won't be attending rookie mini camp, but the Rams aren't worried.
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
