#ScholarshipAlert: Tom Herman enlists the help of parents

Awarding walk-ons with scholarships has become an outlet of insane creativity for a lot of college football programs, but there's something to be said for a simple and effective approach that really tugs at the heartstrings.

That's what Texas did with their video awarding sophomore linebacker Jett Bush. Tom Herman starts the video by letting the Jett's parents in on the scholarship news, even starting to get a little emotional as he shares the good news.

Herman then enlists the help of Mr. Bush to deliver the news during their team meeting later in the day, and that where this one starts to tug at the heart strings.

After delivering the news, Mr. Bush stays on the call and really soaks in the moment of his son fulfilling his lifelong dream of being a scholarship football player at Texas, and you can almost feel the emotion in the room.
