DES MOINES, Iowa — Former Grand View football player Dallis Flowers had a thrilling weekend.
Not only did he gets signed by the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent, he also walked across the stage at graduation to receive his diploma from Grand View University.
Flowers played for the Vikings through his senior year, but used his extra year of eligibility to play his final season at Pittsburg State.
"Graduating period, graduating with my little brother and all our friends and family here. I mean like, it's a good feeling," said Flowers. "My goal was to make it to the NFL and now I'm here. So, now I'm about to make the best out of the opportunity. This is a great day and great weekend overall."
Flowers got to graduate alongside his brother Brendan, who also played for Grand View.
Brendan actually wrapped up his undergrad course work in December. Since the December grads were invited to walk in the spring ceremony, the university allowed Dallis to come back and walk in it as well.
