After Saturday’s spring game, Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs went out of his way to cheer up a young fan who was disappointed to miss out on meeting Dobbs.
Dobbs had a solid performance in the game, completing 5 of 9 passes for 116 yards but also had one interception. He was also named a captain for the coming season, and he was honored with the Peyton Manning Leadership Award. What Dobbs did after the game, however, really stood out for fans.
After seeing this tweet featuring a video of a young Vols fan absolutely distraught about missing out on meeting his favorite player, Dobbs went out of his way to turn the fan’s day around.

Dobbs made another fan’s day following the Orange and White game, too. This young lady had one simple wish, and Dobbs obliged.
