Tennessee coach Butch Jones made a young Vols fan’s wish come true.
Neyland Pickel is a five-year old Tennessee superfan who was named after Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium. But that’s not all of Pickel’s story, unfortunately.
In May, Pickel was diagnosed with leukemia, and his one wish was to meet Jones. That wish was granted last week when Jones paid Pickel a visit at Children’s Hospital in Knoxville, WRCB.com’s Ken Nicholson reports.
Pickel won his first battle with cancer a year ago. Hopefully, a little inspiration from Coach Jones will help the youngster prevail a second time.
