There is nothing better than the countless videos surfacing leading up to the season that show walk-on players earning scholarships for their hard work on the field.
The Texas Longhorns are the latest program to release one, giving offensive lineman Garrett Graf a scholarship for his efforts.
Texas head coach Tom Herman used a magician to begin the festitivies, before the magician revealed Graf was now on full scholarship.
Graf burst into tears as his teammates chered him on.
So happy for @GarrettGraf75. Well deserved honor for a great teammate. #1-0 #ThisIsTexas pic.twitter.com/STukMeLped

How great was that?
Graf made his debut for the Longhorns last season and now he is being rewarded for all of the hard work he has put in since joining the team back in 2014.
