Walk-on players work just as hard as those on scholarships, but they don't get the same financial benefits as their teammates. When a team is able to reward the walk-ons for their hard work, it creates an awesome moment.

Four of Western Michigan's walk-ons were in for a pleasant surprise during Tuesday's team meeting. Coach P.J. Fleck had some fun with the team at the beginning of the video, but he was just getting warmed up.

The coach's celebration may be even better than the reaction of the players who received the scholarships.
