Oklahoma State football players received a “motivational video” from former OSU standout and current Dallas Cowboys tight end Blake Jarwin.
Jarwin shared the story about how he received his scholarship at OSU. He started as a walk-on and was put on a full ride scholarship midway through his career in Stillwater.
“It was one of the most memorable moments of my life,” Jarwin said in the video posted on OSU football’s Twitter account. “And now six years later, I’m honored to present, as a former walk-on to a current walk-on, a scholarship. Jake Springfield, congratulations...”

OSU players screamed and rushed to congratulate Springfield, who joined the Cowboys as a walk-on last season. The redshirt freshman offensive lineman from Flower Mound, Texas, was overcome with emotion by the news as his teammates rushed to celebrate with him.
