Have you ever asked your parents how they became engaged? Chances are, your future dad asked your future mom, and that was that. Somewhere along the line it became no longer culturally acceptable to simply ask your love for their hand, it had to be a production.

For coaches, it’s become that way with handing your favorite walk-on his scholarship papers. You can’t just, you know, hand them to him anymore. You’ve got to surprise him. (If you want to get on FootballScoop, at least. And we all know that’s what truly matters here.)

This time around it was Hawaii and head coach Nick Rolovich’s turn. Walk-on Brodie Nakama was asked to climb to the top of the 10-meter diving platform, where a big surprise awaited him.

Also, who jumps in the pool with socks on?
