Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck continuously has new and creative ways to award scholarships to his players.
Fleck’s latest effort came Wednesday with the help of the Minnesota Twins. Walk-on wide receiver Clay Geary, a native of the Minneapolis area, threw out the first pitch at the Twins’ game against the Braves.
And then he got surprised with a scholarship.
Thanks to the @Twins for helping create a SPECIAL moment for Clay Geary and our WHOLE team!! You’ve TRULY earned this Clay!! I’m proud of ya & I love ya!! #RTB #HYPRR #SkiUMah #OneMN pic.twitter.com/ZSsGuTia9z— P.J. Fleck (@Coach_Fleck) August 7, 2019
Geary is set to be a redshirt junior in 2019 and played primarily on special teams for the Gophers in 2018. He did get the first catch of his career last season too. It was a seven-yard grab against New Mexico State.
