VIDEO: Four Georgia Tech walk-ons receive scholarships

Four Georgia Tech football walk-ons were awarded scholarships on Wednesday by coach Paul Johnson.

Georgia Tech posted a video on Twitter of the Yellow Jackets reacting to quarterback Chase Martenson, defensive backs Zach Matthews and Josh Selembo and B-back Brady Swilling learning they received a scholarship.

"This is a fun time of the year for me because sometimes we get to the point where we're not to our 85 (available scholarships) and we can reward some of those guys who have been out here for a while,” Johnson said. “So we got some guys tonight that I'm going to help out."
