VIDEO: Mean Green Student-Athletes Honored At Graduation Banquet
47 North Texas Student-Athletes Graduated In May
DENTON - The North Texas Athletics Department honored 47 student-athletes who received their diplomas last weekend with a reception in the HUB Club at Apogee Stadium.
The football team led the way with 14 players receiving their undergraduate degrees. Seven swimmers and divers were honored as well as five men's basketball players.
"The thing that I think is special here is that I have had the opportunity to sit with most of them or see them play," said North Texas athletics director Rick Villarreal. "They are such a great group of kids, and it was an honor to be their athletic director."
Jason Roets and Juan Munoz earned their degrees after leading the men's golf team to a conference championship and a NCAA Regional appearance.
