WATCH: Color blind boy sees orange, purple for first time at Clemson tailgate


by - Assoc. Editor -

A Clemson family had an extraordinary moment while tailgating during Clemson's win over Wofford.

Their son Rylan is protan color blind, which is a type of red-green color blindness in which the red cones do not detect enough red and are too sensitive to greens, yellows, and oranges.

His father gave his son a pair of Enchroma glasses to try to see if he could see purple, orange, and red for the first time.

"It literally takes his (and our) breath away," he said. "He then attended the Military Appreciation Day game where the Clemson Tigers were wearing all purple! What a miraculous experience. We're so excited for this new world he is experiencing. What a wonderful world!"

What a great and memorable moment for Rylan and his family that I'm sure they will remember the rest of their lives.
