He Made it: Dillon Powers attends Notre Dame Commencement ceremony

On Saturday I wrote how Colorado Rapids rookie Dillon Powers was hoping to get from San Jose to Indiana in time to make it to his graduation ceremony at Notre Dame on Sunday morning. It was a trip that afforded no room for error or delays. Powers was held out of the match at San Jose - which probably helped him the pursuit. He didn't need to clean up and was able to get a ride to San Francisco Airport in time.

From his twitter handle we knew he made it to Chicago on time, but we didn't know if he made it to the Commencement in time

Well, on Monday he tweeted that he had made it. Here's Dillon in cap and gown in front of touchdown Jesus.
