Video of Vanderbilt's James Franklin Giving Scholarship to Marc Panu Is Epic
Hard work paid off for one Vanderbilt walk-on athlete, and we all get to benefit from the warm and fuzzy feeling provided from this video.
The video posted over at Yardbarker features Vanderbilt football players having a regular meeting, nothing special of note.
Things start to get more intense as coach James Franklin talks about the intangibles being brought by walk-on fullback Marc Panu.
His highlights are being shown for the team, and one hit has them all captivated.
He then pauses to reach for a paper and announces that this young man who has given his all would be rewarded with a scholarship.
The crowd goes wild.
The Associated Press via Yahoo! Sports has more about this 21-year-old who has some financial comfort to go along with the respect he earned from the staff and the rest of his teammates.
Panu is a four-year walk-on who is also a former All-State linebacker from Whitefield Academy in Georgia.
When he isn't setting harsh blocks, he is busy attending to his studies where he hopes to graduate with a degree in chemical engineering.
There are so many negative stories floating around college football. It's great to finally see a young man awarded for tireless effort.
That's doing it right.
