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.

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.
