When Vanderbilt takes on N.C. State later today in the Music City Bowl, the Commodores will have four special guests in the stands.
Coach James Franklin presented four tickets to the game to a former military member and his family who got to know through Twitter of all places. The family attended Friday's practice and the former corporal broke down the team afterward.
"Always recruiting. If we recruit four new fans a day, four new fans over 365 days a year over two years, you can make a pretty good impact," Franklin said. "Not only are we here to win games and graduate our players but make an impact in our community."
Below is a video of the presentation:
