Watch: Texas Walk-On OL Garrett Graf Earns Scholarship In Emotional Video

A Texas football player on the phone.

Get your tissues ready.

Texas senior offensive lineman Garrett Graf grew up in Grand Prairie, Tex. dreaming of playing for the Longhorns.

A walk-on member of the Texas program since 2014, Graf made his first game appearance last season. Surely, that was a highlight for the young man, and last night certainly was as well.

Utilizing a magician, Texas head coach Tom Herman gave Graf a scholarship in front of all of his teammates, who immediately mobbed him with congratulations.

However, that isn't the only special part of this video. A tearful Graf addresses his teammates and then calls his family to inform him of the good news.

Come on, if you didn't at least get goosebumps from that, check your pulse.

Congrats to Garrett.
