The Feel Good Side of Sports: Vandy Walk-on Earns Scholly (Video)

On the same day Tyrann Mathieu was dismissed from the LSU football team for violating team rules, I bring you a feel-gooder, this time out of Nashville, Tennessee. Four year walk-on fullback Marc Panu earned a full scholarship as a member of the Vanderbilt football team.

Head coach James Franklin highlights the play of Panu in front of the whole team, explaining how his play is that of an exemplary teammate. He then announces the scholarship to a rousing ovation. Grab a tissue, you pansies.

Good on you, Marc.
