KALAMAZOO, Mich. – A Western Michigan football walk-on received a special gift Saturday, delivered by Sylvester Stallone.

Head Coach P.J. Fleck started the presentation by coming out to the field in full pads.  He challenged Carson to stop him from getting into the end zone.  If he did, the whole team would get to skip the evening meeting.

Carson stopped Fleck, who then directed everyone to watch the video board for the presentation. You can watch the whole presentation here:

In 2015, the university surprised Trevor Sweeney with a scholarship during an onside kick drill.
