There are a number of creative and touching ways that coaches have handed out scholarships to deserving walk-ons over the years (PJ Fleck taped a scholarship offer to a ball, while Brian Kelly used a uniform reveal at Notre Dame), but the special moment that David Cutcliffe provided a Blue Devil walk on recently may be the best one yet.
During a team meeting at Duke, Cut is addressing the team when the phone rings, and it’s the parents of walk on defensive end Danny Doyle…
I’ll let the video pick it up from there for full effect.
Props to Cut and his staff for coming up with this one. It’s still giving me chills all over.
