FT. COLLINS, Co. - Colorado State student Andrew Schneeweis won't have to take out any loans for this year's classes.

He drained a half-court shot during CSU's pep rally Saturday night to earn his tuition-free year thanks to CSU head coaches Tom Hilbert, Larry Eustachy, Jim McElwain and Ryan Williams putting up the money for the lucky shot.

Volleyball coach Hilbert tweeted: "nHey @A_schneeweis great shot. The energy you brought to the event tonight was unreal. Worth every penny."

Football coach McElwain tweeted: "Hey gotta see our man Andrew hit this half court shot for some free tuition! Wow! Happy to be paying some of the bill!!"

Women's basketball coach Williams tweeted: "@A_schneeweis u quit smiling yet? I'm still jacked! Don't forget to get ur tail to class tomorrow boss!"

And finally, Schneeweis himself tweeted: "@LarryEustachy @CoachMcElwain @CSU_Williams @CoachHilbert Thanks so much for the tuition!! Unbelievable!!! #bringtheruckus #CSURams"
