After a devastating spinal chord injury during a football game in 2015, Ty Williams wasn't sure if he'd ever be able to walk again. He made a promise that he'd be able to stand and accept his diploma when he graduated and recently fulfilled that promise and then some at Georgetown University's commencement ceremony.
A moment we will never forget: @HoyasFB senior Ty Williams, who suffered a spinal chord injury in a game in September 2015, walks for the first time in 2.5 years at @Georgetown's graduation on Saturday where he earned his degree in government. #HoyaSaxa pic.twitter.com/VKOh8bFOmr— Georgetown Hoyas (@GeorgetownHoyas) May 19, 2018

According to The Washington Post, the dedicated senior remained on the Hoyas' roster and attended practice up until graduation. All the best for your continued recovery. We're super impressed and see big things in your future, Ty!
