Walk-ons are college football's dreamers. The more ambitious hope to shine brightly enough to earn scholarships. And a few - inspired by the long-shot stories of Antonio Brown, J. J. Watt, and others - envision themselves on NFL rosters. While the motivations of walk-ons haven't changed much since Amos Alonzo Stagg devised the concept of athletic scholarships in 1892, their prominence has. Thanks primarily to "Rudy," the rousing 1993 movie about Notre Dame's Rudy Ruettiger, and the professional stardom of onetime walk-ons like Brown, Watt, Jordy Nelson, and Clay Matthews, the subject has moved out of the shadows. Books, newspapers, and magazines regularly chronicle the best of these football fairy tales. Next month, "Greater, a film about Arkansas' Brandon Burlsworth, who went from walk-on to all-American before dying in a 1999 car crash, is scheduled to be released.

"Starting out as a walk-on definitely was a tough challenge," said Hayes, who as a two-way star at Howell High attracted no interest from Division I or II schools. If you're really convinced you're as good as you think you are, you shouldn't settle for something less. Nassib, whose grit earned him a scholarship at a time when NCAA sanctions limited Penn State to just 65, said that even as an undersize, walk-on freshman, he never doubted himself. "You need to have that," he said. No one knows precisely how many walk-ons there are at the 128 Football Bowl Subdivision schools, where scholarships are capped at 85 but rosters frequently top 100. But by any estimate the number is well over 1,000. "They're always going to be... Source: www.newsobserver.com
