Western Michigan Uses Movie Star to Give Scholarship to Walk-On Player

Michigan State v Western Michigan

Western Michigan head football coach P.J. Fleck had two surprises up his sleeve on Saturday. During practice, he showed up on the field in full uniform – pads, helmet – the whole shebang. According to, Fleck announced that he would run a one on one goal-line stand drill against one of the players. If that player could stop Coach Fleck from scoring, everybody would get the rest of the day off. He chose walk-on linebacker Kasey Carson, from Battle Creek.

So, Kasey stopped Coach Fleck. “And the crowd went nuts.” But there was more. Directing everybody’s attention to the stadium scoreboard, “Rambo” and “Rocky” star Sylvester Stallone appeared on screen, with a pep talk and a full scholarship for Kasey. Very cool.

Here’s the article.
