Texas A&M awarded scholarships to three walk-on players Saturday, and their teammates went crazy for them.
The Aggies gave sophomore LB Cullen Gillaspia, junior TE Tanner Schorp and junior P Shane Tripucka scholarships after all three fought their way onto the depth chart. The team posted the video on Twitter.
Schorp is listed as a co-starter on the team’s post-camp depth chart. Tripucka won the team’s starting punter job this fall. Gillaspia is a backup for the Aggies at weakside linebacker.
Watch Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin announce the scholarships at the team meeting on Saturday:
Hard work pays off.
Now on scholarship. Congrats! ?https://t.co/VACfyrdFE6
