Gronk Surprises Texas Tech Player with Scholarship
Video courtesy of The Hustle.
I love watching videos of a walk on being told he's gotten a scholarship.
This one starts with New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola saying "hi" to Justus Parker. Parker is a walk on DB for the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Amendola himself is from The Woodlands, TX, and played his college ball at Texas Tech.
After the quick intro, Dola passes the camera over to his team mate Rob Gronkowski. Gronk then prompted jumps right into the announcement, that Justus has been put on scholarship. After lots of cheering and enjoyment, Justus proceeds to lead the team with a "family" cheer.
At the end of the clip, you can see why Justus was offered a scholarship. The clip shows Parker intercepting a pass against the Texas Longhorns with about 2 minutes to go the Red Raiders down by 3. Texas Tech ended up winning the game by a score of 27 to 23.
