Sixteen-year-old Logan Wires was one of the Clemson fans of the game during Clemson's 42-36 win recently against Louisville as he cheered passionately for the Clemson defense late in the game. Logan has cerebral palsy, and he rose up out of his wheelchair to help support his Tigers.

Logan received a letter on Monday from former Clemson offensive lineman Eric Mac Lain and star slugger Seth Beer and was invited to lunch with them.

"No way," Logan said about seeing a letter from Seth Beer. "OH MY GOD, OH SNAP."

“Logan, his brother Carson, and I attend all of the home games," Bill Wires said via "Logan has cerebral palsy. It affects his legs, hands and trunk muscles. Cognitively, he attends regular school, takes honors classes, loves Jesus, and is the biggest Clemson fan ever."

Standing up for Logan was a huge deal because he cannot stand up without some form of assistance.

"He occasionally is made to stand with assistance during therapy sessions, but it is rare for him to attempt to do it on his own and only for a few minutes with assistance. He cannot stand without assistance. Saturday night, he decided — on his own — that along with his normal cheering, he also needed to stand."
