The action was pretty intense during Clemson's 42-36 win against Louisville Saturday night. The sellout crowd of 83,362 at Death Valley provided a worthy stage for one of the most anticipated games of the college football season. One fan in particular went the extra mile to show support.
Early in the fourth quarter, a 16-year-old Clemson fan with cerebral palsy got up out of his wheelchair during an especially intense moment. On Facebook, Bill Wires shared a picture of his son Logan pulling himself up by a railing and propping himself up. The post has gone viral, garnering over 1,000 reactions and CBSSports.com did a story on the photo.
Wires said he had seen Logan prop himself up in therapy sessions, but never in public.
"I was shocked when I turned and saw him," Wires said. "When I questioned him about it, he simply said that the team needed him to stand and cheer so that's what he was going to do."
"This was the first time I've seen him try to pull himself up by himself in public."
