(WYMT) - This year's Christmas was a special one for one young member of the Big Blue Nation.
A young Kentucky fan found out he was going to the Citrus Bowl and was filled with emotion. His father tweeted out a video of the moment.

After seeing the video and the reaction from the young fan, UK Football's Vince Marrow invited him to one of the Wildcats' practices down in Orlando.
Very touch by this. I would love to invite this you man to practice.— CoachMarrowUK (@vincemarrow) December 26, 2018
