#ScholarshipAlert: PJ Fleck uses the Spring Game to surprise a kid with a scholarship

PJ Fleck has been known to get pretty creative when awarding scholarships to deserving walk-ons.

He's pranked his team, surprised them during Easter egg hunts, got Sylvester Stallone involved, as well as a few other notable ideas.

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.
