Video: Creighton coach Jim Flanery awards scholarship to walk-on in surprise ceremony

Creighton walk-on Aimee Rischard received the best kind of present during a team meeting Wednesday — a scholarship.

It was a big surprise to Rischard and the rest of her teammates. Creighton coach Jim Flanery called Rischard up to the front of the room to read something off a card. When she looked at it, she realized what it was.

Rischard, an Oklahoma City native, came to Creighton in 2015 after serving as a student manager at Oklahoma. She played in 17 games for the Jays this past season.

Watch the video below for the surprise reveal of Rischard's scholarship.
