LSU superfan Colton Moore soaks up Death Valley vibes during match against Utah State

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - LSU superfan Colton Moore soaked up all of the excitement from the sidelines in Death Valley as the Tigers claimed a win over Utah State Saturday, Oct. 5.

On Friday, Oct. 4 the Alabama native met his idol, Coach Ed Orgeron and watched the Tigers practice. Orgeron gave Moore a custom jersey and some other LSU gear.

Just a day later he was treated to an all-star experience as Orgeron’s special guest and wheeled into Tiger Stadium by Coach O to the sound of thunderous applause and cheers. After the win Saturday, Coach O even introduced Moore to members of the media during a postgame press conference.

Moore lives with a medical condition called spina bifida which impacts his ability to travel. When Moore’s mother learned of Colton’s strong admiration for Coach O and desire to come to Baton Rouge to meet him, she created a Facebook post seeking opportunities that would help make that meeting possible.

With the help of LSU’s athletic department, Colton’s dream came true.
