Catching a scholarship

Western Michigan walk-on Trevor Sweeney has done many special teams drills before, but the junior was caught off-guard during a typical onside-kick drill when he picked up the football with something wrapped around it.

Secured with rubber bands, WMU coaches had attached a scholarship to a football and the Broncos kicker directed an onside kick in Sweeney's direction. Once Sweeney had possession of the ball, his teammates gathered as he slowly unwrapped the gift, read the letter and celebrated.

The presensation by the Broncos was a nice twist on a timeless gesture by the coaches, and one Sweeney won't soon forget.
