Northwestern awards scholarships to three walk-ons


Awwwwwww, this is nice. Every year before school starts, as the scholarship numbers get figured out, schools give out any extra scholarships to a few deserving walk-ons. This year, linebacker Josh Roberts, wide receiver Austin Carr and kicker Jack Mitchell earned scholarships.

Carr has started at receiver the past two weeks due to injuries elsewhere at receiver, while Mitchell is the starting kicker. Roberts is a reserve linebacker.
