Kyle said that Juenemann is one of his favorite players after hearing that Fleck chose to give Kyle the chance to deliver an unforgettable surprise to Juenemann.

Minnesota head coach P.J. Fleck surprised Juenemann with a scholly during a team meeting. "It was a surreal moment, it was so awesome".

The coach made remarks about Juenemann recognizing his work ethic and noting he never gave up through the years. "And Justin fit the bill for all four". "He could easily just not do it and nobody would ever say anything and all he does is continue to keep his oar in his water, continue to live that holistic life, academically, athletically, socially and spiritually". "Someone like [Justin] has every reason to stay on the sidelines, but he doesn't".

"I've never seen anybody serve and give more than that guy who is not a star player", said Fleck of Juenemann.

The original video of the surprise now has close to 400,000 views on Facebook. He caught it but took a moment to realize what the t-shirt said. "It's pretty cool for him to reach out and he didn't have to, but he did and it means a lot".

You really do have to see it to believe it.

Juenemann was quickly swarmed by his teammates before sitting down and giving his mom a call to let her known about his scholarship.
