When he left Texas AM in 2001, Jason Glenn was 12 credits short of his life science degree.

A few years later, when he plotted out how to finish his degree, the Vikings veteran linebacker learned a hard lesson.

"They say the longer you stay out, the more credits that are added," Glenn said.

His 12 credits turned into 21.

That, however, didn't stop Glenn from earning his degree.
