We all remember this awesome moment several weeks ago when Mississippi St. Coach Dan Mullen surprised walk-on LB DeAndre Ward with a scholarship. Expanding on that, College Gameday today produced this really great piece on walk-ons across the country earning scholarships, and how much it means to those guys. Well done to all of those coaches who made such a big difference in those players lives.
Scholarship LB DeAndre Ward and the Mississippi State football team take on UAB today at 1 p.m.
If you're having trouble viewing the video on a mobile device, try viewing it within the tweet from College Gameday:
