Kansas football walkons Beau Lawrence, Mazin Aql, Cole Moos and Reese Randall thought they had been selected to sing karaoke on Crown Vision during the fifth inning of Friday night’s Royals game at Kauffman Stadium.

Instead, the cameras were in front of them for a different reason. The four were left speechless as they read on the videoboard that they had earned scholarships with the team.

What followed was disbelief, congratulations and also emotional phone calls to Dad.

KU football opens its season Sept. 2 at home against Southeast Missouri.
