What Rudy was to Notre Dame football in the '70s, Josh Anderson is in 2015.

Fighting Irish head coach Brian Kelly surprised the walk-on Anderson by revealing he was getting a scholarship during a team meeting on Thursday.

Anderson thought he was coming in to model some new uniforms for the team.

Whether you like or despise Notre Dame, it's pretty cool to see someone who's clearly worked so hard get rewarded.

Anderson, a senior, has been with the team since he was a freshman and last year led the offense scout team.

We're guessing the only other people more excited are his parents, who don't have to worry about footing the staggering tuition bill this year.
