Tesho Akindele Becomes First MLS Player to Graduate from SNHU

FRISCO - Forget #FBF, it was #CongratsTesho Friday today at Toyota Stadium as FC Dallas forward Tesho Akindele became the first MLS player to earn his degree online from Southern New Hampshire University, as part of a partnership between Major League Soccer and the University.

Akindele’s coaches and teammates Walker Zimmerman, Aaron Guillen, Ryan Hollingshead, Jacori Hayes, Chris Seitz and Victor Ulloa (both of whom are also studying at SNHU) joined the entire FC Dallas front office to celebrate Akindele’s graduation. Akindele finished his degree with a near-perfect GPA and is already enrolled in a master’s program in finance with SNHU.
