During a night meeting on Monday, head coach Kliff Kingsbury told Justus Parker that two of the Pats had a video message for him up on the board.

“Justus, what’s up man? Congratulations, you’re on scholarship,” Gronk said as the entire room lit up with applause.

It’s pretty hard not to get chills watching this video. Justus Parker walked onto the Texas Tech football team last  year after transferring from Texas Lutheran University. He was met with pretty warm reception from the Red Raiders – playing all 12 games with a total of 42 tackles. This year, he was awarded Second-Team All-Big 12.

And, as a Sophomore, it looks like Justus has a pretty bright future ahead of him.
