PJ Fleck has been known to get pretty creative when awarding scholarships to deserving walk-ons.
During the Gophers spring game yesterday, Fleck awarded a scholarship to walk-on Sam Renner via a message on the jumbotron. Thankfully, cameras were zoomed in to catch the reaction on Renner’s face, and it’s a special moment.
After Renner got word, Fleck stopped everything and the team celebrated accordingly.
Why we love spring football today: @Coach_Fleck paused Thursday's spring game to give walk-on defensive end Sam Renner a scholarship.
Sam then got to soak in the moment with teammates and fans: pic.twitter.com/HcELbpRL8K
