SHARE You have to see this Northwestern walk-on receive full scholarship

Sports, at their core, are meant to lift us up. To build character. To teach sacrifice and the rewards of being part of a team.

None of those principles can be summed up any better than by watching James Montgomery, a 2-year walk-on basketball player, as he is rewarded with a full scholarship – announced in a team meeting by Northwestern coach Chris Collins. Montgomery is a senior guard from Los Angeles..

Yes, this is a Northwestern PR spot, but still, the celebration his teammates join in on is touching. The moment when he calls his mom to tell her … an Old Yeller moment.

Watch it and weep.
