"These are two guys who have really earned it," McElwain said. "They have worked their tails off and not only do we appreciate what they do, but our team recognizes these were two very deserving guys, as were other guys. It goes to show we do reward those guys who come here and work hard and earn it."
McKay, a tight end/H-back from Akron, Colo., has played in 23 games for Colorado State. Used primarily on special teams, McKay has recorded seven tackles, two forced fumbles and a blocked punt.
Hulbert, a 5-foot-11, 215-pound linebacker from Highlands Ranch, Colo., is also a fixture on CSU's special teams unit. The junior linebacker has played in eight games for the Rams and has registered one tackle.
Walk-ons play a critical role at Colorado State and are often rewarded for their hard work. In McElwain's first season, kicker Jared Roberts was one of three Rams earning scholarships just nine days before the Rocky Mountain Showdown.
"There is a strong tradition here of walk-ons playing a strong role in the team's success and earning scholarships," McElwain said. "We really value the hard work and commitment those walk-on players show, and recognize their importance to our team."
