Four Kansas walk-ons surprised with scholarships at Royals game

  It was a memorable night for Mazin Aql, Beau Lawrence, Cole Moos and Reese Randall.

Kansas senior punter Cole Moos thought that he was being chosen for a karaoke segment when he and three other Jayhawks were singled out on Kauffman Stadium's video board during the team's outing at Friday night's Kansas City Royals vs. Cleveland Indians game.

Moos never got to show off his pipes though. Instead, he and three other former walk-ons — Mazin Aql, Beau Lawrence and Reese Randall — were surprised with scholarships in front of a crowd of nearly 36,000.

While it was clear none of the four recipients had any idea of what was coming, their teammates were quick to provide congratulatory hugs and high-fives.
