Just Another Reason to Send Leach to the Beach

You’ve heard the phrase, and you’ve likely expressed it on’s Pro Bowl voting.  Now the NFL’s leading rusher’s full back, Vontae Leach, is a degree holding graduate of East Carolina University.  Coach Gary Kubiak allowed Leach to miss Friday’s short practice in order to walk the stage and receive his degree in child development and family relations.  Leach will reunite with the team this afternoon.  Leach said on his graduation:

“You only walk across that stage one time, and it really mattered to me.  I felt like not a lot of people get their degrees, and that was something I wanted…When this football stuff is over, I’ve got something to hang my hat on.”
