Hawaii walk-on is forced to climb up huge high dive to get surprise scholarship

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.
