Ex-NFL Star Jamal Lewis

I'm a Debt School Graduate

EXCLUSIVE

0214_jamal_lewis_graduationCongrats to retired NFL star Jamal Lewis for passing the most important test of his life -- an online financial management course -- in an effort to convince a U.S. Bankruptcy court he's a changed man.

We broke the story ... the former Baltimore Ravens running back -- who once racked up more than 2,000 yards in a single season -- filed for bankruptcy back in 2012 after racking up more than $10 MILLION in debts!!

But now, TMZ Sports has learned ... Lewis enrolled in the illustrious "Dave Ramsey Education Course" and completed an online class on February 12th ... bringing hm one step closer to financial recovery.

Hopefully, he learned his lesson ... unlike bankrupt Warren Sapp who also completed an online class back in 2012 ... and went on to stupidly make a $100k bet on the Super Bowl ... which he lost.

This article can be shown to many teenagers as a good example. Students have to remember that all eggs shouldn`t be put in one basket. Education is very important and even if it seems to you that you don`t need it now, perceive it as a good investment in your future. Unfortunately it is very difficult to explain to our children as writing college papers seems boring for them (search for help while writing them here HelpOnEssay writing service ) and of course sport and fame is much more attractive. However we congratulate Jamal and wait for his interview.
