Player's scholarship is football season's first feel-good moment8/11/2012
Not a game has been played this college football season, but we have an inspirational highlight already. Vanderbilt coach James Franklin pushes all the right emotional buttons in a film session when he highlights the efforts of walk-on fullback Marc Panu for "finding a way to bring value to the team." But it's not just empty praise: Franklin then goes to his lectern to fetch a piece of paper and announce his delight in awarding Panu a full scholarship. The reaction in the room is all you need to know about how the players feel about a teammate making good.
