Scholarship surprise

  Josh Anderson was surprised with a scholarship on Thursday.

Notre Dame walk-on running back Josh Anderson surely thought he was simply going to model the Fighting Irish’s new Shamrock Series alternate uniform in front of the team on Thursday.

Instead, he was given the surprise of a lifetime by coach Brian Kelly.

After having Anderson model the uniform in a team meeting, Kelly started praising Anderson as a player and a person. Then, he announced that Anderson would be a walk-on no more, as Notre Dame was awarding the senior a scholarship.

The Fighting Irish posted video of the incredible moment on its Vimeo account, and it’s quite the sight to see Anderson’s and his teammates’ reactions.

Have yourself a day, Josh Anderson.
