The head coach P.J. Fleck invited one of the patients named Kyle in for a team meeting. Kyle spoke with the team and said Juenemann was one player in particular he always saw visiting the hospital. When he finally got around to reading it, the text on the shirt read, "Justin, congrats on earning a scholarship".
Juenemann was quickly swarmed by his teammates before sitting down and giving his mom a call to let her known about his scholarship.
Fleck shared some incredible words about Juenemann with his team: "I've never seen anybody serve and give more than that guy, who is not a star player, who hasn't played where his face is recognizable". "He could easily not do it, and nobody would say anything".More news: Uber's Graves Stepping Down From Leadership Role
Juenemann later video chatted with his mom in Kansas, who was delirious with joy.
"Than you Coach Fleck, Kyle, and everyone who was involved in setting this up".
Juenemann has yet to appear in a game with the Golden Gophers, but if he does, it'll be as a scholarship athlete for the first time in his life.More news: Who Is the French Billionaire Making a Play for Charter Communications?
