The Stanford Cardinal did a pretty cool thing at the conclusion of their spring game on Saturday.

After a solid performance, the team surprised junior walk-on quarterback Jack Richardson with a scholarship.

“Jack Richardson is the most improved player on the team,” Stanford coach David Shaw said, via Palo Alto Online. “From where he was when he walked on campus to now, he’s bigger, he’s stronger, he’s more athletic, his arm is stronger, and he’s got a great understanding of the offense. We feel like Jack can go in a game and help us out if we need him to.”

Richardson, the only healthy quarterback on the roster, said the scholarship meant a lot to him.

“It means a lot,” Richardson said. “Being a walk-on really makes me appreciate the grind of sports and what my parents have sacrificed. It’s what I worked for.”

Walk-on players earning scholarships are always really cool moments. It looks like Richardson might get some game time, too, and he looks to have earned it.
