Watch This Northwestern Basketball Walk-On Get Surprised with a Full Scholarship

Video

Northwestern basketball coach Chris Collins thought so highly of James Montgomery, he didn’t just give him a full scholarship for this season, he announced it in front of the entire team. The best part of the video, though, is Montgomery telling his mom and sister the news over the phone. You can probably guess how they react, but watch anyway.

Congrats to you James Montgomery. You have shown what hard work, perseverance and positive attitude can do. We need more like you. I hope you continue to be a leader and will be cheering for you except when you play my beloved Hoosiers.
