“We got a problem here guys,” is never the way you want to start a meeting, especially when it’s your head coach saying it while being followed by a police officer. That’s typically not a great sign, I’m thinking.

It turned out to be a good one for Owen Aschieris of TCU.

The Horned Frogs awarded the walk-on a scholarship but not until after a momentary scare by coach Jamie Dixon and local police.

I think the next step in these walk-on-gets-a-scholarship videos has to be maybe the walk-on solves an Escape Room? Completes a tough mudder? How about a bungee jump where he has to sign his name on the papers at the bottom? We’ll see how far we can take this trend.
