Georgia Tech’s head coach Paul Johnson showed his team that it always pays off to put in work. Johnson awarded not one, but four walk-ons with scholarships yesterday evening.
The four athletes, redshirt senior fullback Brady Swilling, redshirt junior defensive backs Josh Selembo and Zach Matthews, along with redshirt junior quarterback Chase Martenson, got a standing ovation from teammates when Johnson announced their scholarships.
