Minnesota coach PJ Fleck rewards kicker with scholarship from T-shirt cannon

1:56 | College Football         College Football Rankings SI Reveals Preseason Top 25

Schools and coaches have developed creative ways to reward walk-on football players scholarships over the last half-decade, and first-year Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck just orchestrated one of the best.

Now at the University of Minnesota, Fleck has done it again. The coach asked Kyle who his favorite player was and the fan pointed out Juenemann because he spent a lot of time at the hospital.

Fleck then handed an air cannon loaded with a t-shirt to Kyle, and told him to fire a shirt at Juenemann. Fleck this week, showed Juenemann being given a T-shirt that read "Justin, congrats on earning a scholarship!" during a team meeting. Kyle said that Juenemann is one of his favorite players after hearing that Fleck made a decision to give Kyle the chance to deliver an unforgettable surprise to Juenemann. "Who hasn't played and his face isn't recognizable". "He could easily not do it, and nobody would say anything". You're sitting here looking at two examples of what our culture can do: ... what other people can do for us and what we can do for them.


Minnesota kicker Justin Juenemann is entering his fifth and final season with the Golden Gophers.

The Gophers first-string kicker, Emmit Carpenter, tweeted his support for Juenemann.
