Walk-on tight end Justin Phillips earns scholarship
Thu Jul 21, 2005
At summer football camps, it's usually high school players who come away with scholarship offers. This past weekend, it was a rising college senior. Carolina tight end Justin Phillips was summoned to the practice field--where the Tar Heels were conducting a camp for high schoolers--to meet with head coach John Bunting. "Justin, we've got it done," Bunting said. Phillips looked back at his coach blankly. "We're putting you on full scholarship," the coach said. Phillips broke into what Bunting later described as an ear-to-ear grin.
