Hobbs to get degree on Saturday

Posted:

AMES- For a mother who watches her son makes a leaving on Sundays, Saturday May 9th will be another dream come true for Nettie Hobbs.  Ellis Hobbs will return to Ames to receive his degree in visual arts and communication keeping a promise he made to his mother since being drafted in the 3rd round of the 2005 NFL Draft.

Hobbs left school for the NFL just seven credits short of his bachelor's degree.  During his four years with the New England Patriots he interned at Kraft Sports Productions owned by Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

Hobbs was traded from New England to Philadelphia during the 2009 NFL Draft.
