Yo, Kasey Carson!
During practice on Saturday, Carson, a linebacker at Western Michigan, was told to look at the video board by coach P.J. Fleck.
When Carson looked up, he saw the face of Rocky himself, Sylvester Stallone. And the Italian Stallion came baring life-changing news for the football player.
“YOU have gotten a full-ride scholarship, my man!” Stallone said, Publishers Clearing House-style.
Carson pumped his fist and was immediately hoisted to the sky by his teammates as the Rocky theme played over the stadium speakers.
Rocky’s appearance was evidently arranged by Alec Gores, a California billionaire who played football for Western Michigan in the 70s. Gores was in the video alongside Stallone.
The video, via Western Michigan, is absolutely worth watching to see Carson and the rest of the team go wild upon hearing the news. Check out the full sequence above.
