    Former Florida Gator and NFL wide receiver, and current Washington Redskins receivers coach, Ike Hilliard, earned his degree in criminal justice Saturday morning, walking in a graduation ceremony at the University of Florida that was 21 years in the making.

    Ike was the No. 7 overall pick of the New York Giants in the 1997 NFL Draft and went on to play 12 seasons in the NFL, the final four coming in Tampa Bay. 12 years ago, Ike made a promise to his mother to return to the University of Florida and get his degree. After 12 years of commuting back and forth between Virginia and Florida his hard work paid off!

    Congratulations, Ike Hilliard!

    Note:
    Ike played receiver for Steve Spurrier from 1994 to 1996. He was a consensus All American in 1996, and was a key member of the 1996 national championship team. He is a member of the University of Florida Athletic Association Hall of Fame.
