Minnesota coach PJ Fleck surprises walk-on with scholarship in incredible way

Juenemann has never attempted a kick for the Golden Gophers, but could be a big part of the team's plans this fall.

Minnesota football coach P.J. Fleck put in a strong bid in his awarding fifth-year kicker Justin Juenemann a scholarship this year.

"I remember seeing one particular person a lot [at the hospital]", Tanner said.

The team was participating in an exercise camp before the official start of team training on Monday. Witnesses said two players fell and the log struck Joshua in the head, causing massive injuries.

The coach told the team Kyle had been eyeing up Minnesota's new T-shirt cannon and he was going to have Kyle test it out in the room by launching a shirt at Juenemann. "Then when I got the shirt it took me a minute and everyone was cheering, my teammates I think even lifted me up a little".

Kyle pointed the cannon and Juenemann, who grabbed the shirt out of mid-air while the team clapped. "Where his face is recognizable", Fleck said in the video. "He could easily just not do it and nobody would ever say anything and all he does is continue to keep his oar in his water, continue to live that holistic life, academically, athletically, socially and spiritually". "All of the emotions running through me at the time and the fact that Coach Fleck and Kyle went through that effort to create a special moment is awesome".

Juenemann hasn't seen any game action in his four years with the program.
