It’s the season of glad tidings and decking halls, but also giving.

Boston College coach Jim Christian got in the spirit this week.

Christian and the Eagles surprised walk-on Chris Herren, Jr. with a scholarship after practice, making their entry into the “awarding walk-ons a scholarship” genre with video of them breaking the good news.

The pump-fake from Christian and the staff was nice, but really, it’s Herren’s initial confusion as to what he was reading that really makes the video.

Happy holidays.
