Photo: Urban Meyer Awards Scholarships To Ohio State Walk-On Linebackers Joe Burger, Craig Fada

Urban Meyer spent his Friday morning awarding scholarships to two of Ohio State's hardest-working players. 

Joe Burger and Craig Fada, who've spent their time with the Buckeyes as walk-on linebackers, are now on full-rides. 

The two were given scholarships in front of the entire team and then signed the scholarship papers in a roped-off area at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

Extremely proud to become a scholarship football player at OSU. Even more special doing it with my brother
