Timian sings fight song, receives surprise scholarship

Luke Timian isn’t much of a singer.

But he’s a pretty good football player, who has earned praise from teammates and coaches for his work inside Indiana’s program the past two seasons.

This week, Timian’s efforts were rewarded.

Timian, who joined IU’s team as a walk-on receiver in 2015, received a scholarship this week from coach Tom Allen. It was a surprise for the redshirt junior, who was called to the front of Indiana’s team room to sing the IU fight song before the surprise was unveiled.

As he sang, the announcement was made on the screens overhead: “LUKE JUST EARNED A SCHOLARSHIP!”

Timian was named IU’s Outstanding Walk-on Player of the Year last season after making 19 catches for 277 yards and one touchdown.
