A former college football player, Chris Norton, was paralyzed while playing football in 2010 and doctors gave him a very slim chance of ever regaining his strength. Well, last Sunday, he WALKED across the stage at his graduation to accept his diploma.

After four years of strenuous rehab, Chris was able to stand up out of his wheelchair, and with the assistance of his girlfriend, walk across the stage on his big day.

As you can see in the video this was a very emotional day for many in attendance. What an inspiration this young man is.

In all, Chris took 15 steps across the stage and shook hands with those handing out diplomas. On this day Chris accomplished more than just an education.
