There’s a long tradition of surprising walk-on college football players with full scholarships in unique and creative ways, but University of Hawaii football coach Nick Rolovich just upped the game to a whole new level.
At the SmackDown house show in Honolulu on Wednesday, Rolovich surprised walk-on player Hunter Hughes with a full ride… in the middle of the ring… with the help of The New Day. And, appropriately, Rolovich told Hughes he had to “dance for it.”

It’s over, Rolovich wins. No scholarship reveal could ever top this.

Congratulations, Hunter! Also, I have to steal this from SB Nation’s Jason Kirk: he’s now “Hawaii’s Hunter Hughes,” which makes him the new Triple H.
If Hughes’s teammates don’t nickname him that, they’re doing it wrong.
