There are some days we all have when a moment of self-awareness strikes you that this, whatever it happens to be, was the last thing you expected to happen today.
For UNLV walk-on Dalton Baker, one of those moments struck like a bolt of lightning on Saturday night.
The Rebels had just finished a preseason scrimmage when head coach Tony Sanchez gathered the club and told them to watch a video on the Sam Boyd Stadium scoreboard. Next thing Baker knows, he’s crowd-surfing on his teammates’ shoulders as UNLV’s newest scholarship recipient.
Take a look.
