Veteran NFL player gets degree from UNLV

Share This Story



NFL linebacker Andra Davis is among some 3,000 students who received undergraduate degrees Saturday at UNLV.

UNLV athletic officials say the 33-year-old linebacker took part in commencement ceremonies after earning his bachelor's degree in social science studies from the College of Liberal Arts.

Davis, who lives in Denver, took online courses and completed an internship at a Las Vegas public charter school for at-risk students.

He played for the University of Florida, but didn't graduate before he was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2002. He also has played for the Denver Broncos and Buffalo Bills, and currently is a free agent hoping to continue his career.

Former Browns defensive line coach Andre Patterson encouraged Davis to get his degree.
