LAFAYETTE — Walk-On's restaurant was started by two LSU walk-on basketball players Brandon Landry and Jack Warner.

This week, Landry helped make a dream come true for one Ragin' Cajun walk-on. In an emotional video below posted on Twitter, Landry tells sophomore running back T.J. Wisham that he had earned his scholarship.

Wisham spent 2018 on UL's scout team where he tried to stand out.

"I took pride in the scout team," he said. "I took a selfish unselfish way of playing scout team. I was selfish in I wanted to get scout team player of the week because I wanted to give the best look for the defense."

"When T.J. was awarded his, it brought tears to my eyes," said senior defensive back Deuce Wallace who was a walk-on after graduating from St. Thomas More High School. "I know that feeling. It's like finally.' All the hard all that time work pays off and everyone can see it."

Wisham is a redshirt sophomore running back from Baton Rouge.
