Syracuse Extends Football Scholarship to One-Month-Old

It’s never too early to get a leg up on the competition. That’s exactly what Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer did when he offered a football scholarship to the son of Syracuse alum and TV/radio sportscaster Adam Schein.

Adam’s son Theo is poised to join the class of 2032. 2032! Theo is only one month old.

The scholarship letter sent reads in part:

“It is my pleasure to inform you that we are extending you a full football scholarship to attend Syracuse University beginning in August 2032,” Shafer wrote. “The coaching staff and I believe the academic, athletic and personal pedigree blessed upon you by your parents Adam & Katie make you an excellent fit for Syracuse University and the Orange Football Family.

“Per NCAA rules, the full scholarship will cover tuition and registration fees, text books and course related fees, and room and board. It will not cover diapers, blankets, bottles or other necessities for your upcoming developmental years. This scholarship is subject to you meeting: (1) all NCAA eligibility requirements (2) all the admission requirements for Syracuse University and (3) at a minimum height of 6’1” and weight of 200 lbs.”

Here is the full letter posted to Instagram:

Wow. Thanks so much, @coach_shafer! My wife & I are proud CUSE grads! Awesome. Theo Schein will see you in 2032!
