College football: Oregon State walk-on earns full scholarship in creative way
In what appeared to be just a simple game, Oregon State walk-on safety Gave Ovgard left practice with a full scholarship.
In a post-practice surprise, Gary Andersen tasked a few players to pick random prizes out of a hat for random teammates. While the first players received less-than-interesting prizes, Ovgard hit the jackpot.
Ovgard began his career at Oregon State as a wide reciever on the scout team, then found his way onto the field on the defensive side as a safety. He finished with 23 tackles, one interception and one pass breakup and started final two games of the season.
