Photos: UAB Linebacker Derek Slaughter Is Wearing His Helmet To Graduation

One of the most unfortunate stories in college sports this year is the shutting down of UAB's football program. School president Ray Watts has come under serious scrutiny for the decision, and members of the school community are not done protesting the decision.

UAB linebacker Derek Slaughter has decided to wear his football helmet to his graduation today, where he will shake hands with Watts while being recognized on stage. 

If Slaughter pulls it off, this will be a very impressive protest against the dissolution of the Blazers program.
