(LEX 18) – A Kentucky boy was reduced to tears when he got the ultimate UK football fan’s Christmas gift…tickets to see the Cats play in the Citrus Bowl.

The touching moment was captured by Jimbo Schaffer. His son Brody is a huge Cats fan and he got a little emotional when he found out he was going to get to see his favorite team.

Over the last few years, Brody has gone to almost every game.

Big Blue Nation has viewed the video more than 150,000 times. The official Kentucky Football Twitter page retweeted the video and told the young man they looked forward to him being in Florida.

Coach Vince Marrow even invited to watch practice!
