WATCH: Viral 9-year old Clemson fan with cerebral palsy


by - Assoc. Editor -

9-year old Clemson fan Hayes Hutto from Commerce, GA was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and was born 13 weeks early.

His recent interview alongside his family with Special Books by Special Kids has gone viral with over 500,000 views on Facebook.

Hutto just wants other people especially children to come up to him to say "Hi" and play with him.

"If you're not my friend and you see me just come over to me and say "Hi" or something. You can just come up and say "Hi" and give me a high five or something."

He also dreams of playing football at Clemson so hopefully, the administration can line up a visit for him to meet Dabo Swinney and some of the players in the near future.

Video Description: Hayes is diagnosed with cerebral palsy and is reliant on a wheelchair. He feels the need to appear strong even though he secretly dreams of being invited to play. Every day Hayes hopes other children will approach him and say “Hi.”
