Watch Franklin announce a scholarship for walk-on: "I'm not giving him sh*t, he earned it"


Whenever a walk-on gets awarded a scholarship, some people will inevitably misspeak and say that a coach "gave the guy a scholarship."

Well when James Franklin awarded one of the Penn State walk on linebackers with a scholarship yesterday he wanted to make something very clear.

"I want to make an announcement right now, because I'm not giving him shit, he has earned this and he's getting a full scholarship - and that's Von Walker." Franklin proudly proclaims.

The clip goes on to capture the emotional moment that Walker called his mom to tell her he's now going to school for free.

If this doesn't give you chills, you're in the wrong profession.
