Northwestern Walk-on James Montgomery III Awarded Scholarship Before Entire Team

Ken ChinSocial Media StaffOctober 22, 2013

If this video doesn't make you feel good, then I don't know what will.

First-year Northwestern head coach Chris Collins awarded walk-on James Montgomery III with a scholarship with the entire team looking on. Montgomery then called his mother and sister, who got a whole lot more excited than he did! 

It's always nice to see hard work and dedication rewarded. 


Thanks to Sporting News for the find.
