CHATTANOOGA, TN (GoMocs.com)--Just hours after ending the most successful season in school history, six members of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team joined eight other student-athletes and hundreds of classmates at the 244th Commencement Ceremonies today.

This group landed in Chattanooga at 4:30 a.m. following their quarterfinal loss at No. 1 New Hampshire on Friday night and managed a few hours of sleep before donning their cap and gowns.  UTC finished with a school record 10-4 mark, its second-straight Southern Conference championship and a No. 8 seed in the FCS Playoffs. 

Tull and track & field's John Gilpin were both Latin Honors Candidates in Health & Human Performance.  Soccer's Kelly Crew and wrestling's Kevin Malone also earned degrees in HHP.  Former wrestler Robert Prigmore earned a Master's of Business Administration while track's Amanda Cotter graduated with a degree in Psychology.
