Receiving a full scholarship to any university is a big freaking deal, but this Western Michigan Bronco not only got a full ride, but had the legend himself, Sylvester Stallone announce the accomplishment via video during a Bronco practice this past Saturday. 

Head Coach of WMU's football team P.J.Fleck challenged the walk-on player Kasey Carson from Battle Creek Harper Creek to a 1-on-1 challenge during the team's Saturday practice. If Carson could stop Fleck from scoring, the team would have their night practice cancelled. 

In the video below, Carson stops Fleck in his path and receives a special surprise from the giant video screen in Waldo Stadium. SylvesterStallone goes full Rocky and informs the team that Carson will be getting a scholarship from the university. You may be thinking that you had the best week ever, but clearly this kid did.
