The Kentucky football program hosted a very important visitor on Saturday morning.
In fact, the team brought on a brand new player to join the roster for a day to make his dream come true. .
This morning, six-year-old Braxton Wessels had his Make-A-Wish wish granted by UK Athletics.
His wish? To live the life of a Kentucky football player for one day.
The team brought him in with his family this morning and showed him around the football facilities, let him meet his new teammates, and watch Kentucky’s scrimmage, among other activities.
By looking at his smile alone, you can already tell he had the time of his life.
Take a look at the footage the Kentucky football social media team released on their Twitter page this afternoon:
