Who will have the greatest scholarship reveal of all time as football programs continue to up the ante on creative ways to tell walk-ons they’ve earned a free pass?
Not long after Ball State used a game show format, Hawaii had a pool party for its squad and opened up the high dive for one person: Long-snapper Brodie Nakama. When he climbed to the top, he found an envelope with a letter telling him he’d earned a full scholarship.
Nakama wiped back tears and leaped into the pool to celebrate, as did the rest of his teammates.
Let’s see what else you’ve got, college football programs. I think Hawaii’s currently got the crown.
