NC State surprises walk-on with scholarship

Monday August 17th, 2015

NC State has a new scholarship player after the team surprised senior walk-on Nicholas Lacy with the news that he would no longer have to pay his own way through school.

Cornerbacks coach George Barlow starts out the meeting by talking about the values the coaches try to instill in the team, before calling up Lacy as a player who best represents those ideals.
