Keaton Jones, the boy who has gone viral because of his outcry against bullying, now has another star at his back.
Kirk Herbstreit, the college football analyst who appears weekly on College GameDay during the season, invited Keaton to go to the set of a College GameDay location next season.

Hey Keaton, I’m very sorry you have been going through such tough times. You showed a lot of courage by letting people know how some have been treating you. We would love have you and your family come out to @CollegeGameDay anytime you’d like next year. You’re always welcome. https://t.co/9WTkpt8Xub

Herbstreit’s tweet quickly garnered over 600 retweets in under 20 minutes. Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano already met Keaton on Sunday.
It’s awesome to see so many reach out to the child. Soon after the video was posted on Friday, many Tennessee players reached out Keaton because he’s reportedly from the Knoxville area. Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald has done the same.
