Video: Campbell head coach surprises walk-on with scholarship

If you’re a fan of sports take a moment and watch this video. You will see a head coach change the life of one of his players in under a minute.

Check out the clip below from Campbell University.

That was Campbell head coach Kevin McGeehan, surprising walk-on Casey Perin with news that he has been awarded an athletic scholarship.

In three years Perin has only scored nine points for Campbell. Still, that hasn’t stopped him from making an impact to the team and coaching staff. He has been described as a “hardworker”, and someone that has earned this opportunity every step of the way.

McGeehan shared some light on his recent decision.

“As we’ve tried to build our program, part of the focus and direction is building around character,” McGeehan said. “There’s not a better example of that than Casey — who he is as a person, the way he conducts himself with peers and adults, his work ethic in the classroom and on the court. He’s just an awesome kid. Easy decision from our standpoint.
