WATCH: Charlotte football team surprises walk-on with scholarship during NFL game
The scholarship award videos continue to pour out, and we still love every second of them.
On Friday, the latest scholarship surprise came out of North Carolina, as UNC-Charlotte surprised one of its walk-on players while taking in a Carolina Panthers preseason game.
Christian Haynes, a senior defensive back for the 49ers, was awarded a full scholarship for the hard work he puts in on and off the field. The announcement came over the public address system during the Panthers’ Friday night preseason game against the Buffalo Bills.
When the announcement was made, Haynes’ teammates erupted with joy and helped him celebrate the moment.
Haynes has appeared in 12 games over the last two years, making two tackles for Charlotte. But it’s not always the statistics that warrant a full scholarship offer.
Below is the video, which was shared by the Carolina Panthers’ official Twitter account:
