We’ve seen plenty of creative, heartwarming “walk-on receives scholarship” videos over the years. But when family is involved, it’s always a little extra special.

The scene: Eugene, Oregon. Football practice. Head coach Willie Taggart calls upon Kaulana Apelu, then a walk-on student-athlete, to take the next rep. Taggart abruptly blows his whistle. The scoreboard lights up — and a familiar face appears.

WALK-ON VIDEOS: EMU | Kansas | Indiana | Georgia Tech | Bowling Green

It’s Apelu’s mother. Watch:

Congratulations to Apelu on his well-deserved scholarship. This is what college athletics is all about.
