Video: Santa delivers a special #ScholarshipAlert to UCF walk-on

This #ScholarshipAlert from UCF seems a bit like a set up from the beginning, but it's all for good reason.

Santa comes into a UCF meeting bearing gifts in a big bag, calling a few players up to ask what they want for Christmas. After the first two share their wish, Santa reaches into his bag and pulls out exactly what they've asked for.

Then redshirt freshman walk-on defensive back Jon Powell is called to the front of the room, where he's handed a piece of paper that he unwraps to see the message: "YOU'RE ON FULL SCHOLARSHIP!"

His teammates of course go nuts.

See it all unfold in the video.
