OMAHA, Neb. (WKRN) – Meet Don Jones.
You may have never heard his name before, but he has been a Vanderbilt fan since the 1960s.
“I believe it started in fifth or sixth grade,” said Jones.
He’s not just a fan, though. He’s a superfan. He’s been to thousands of Vanderbilt sporting events – including the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska.
This trip is different, though.
Vanderbilt called Jones earlier this month to offer him an all-expense paid trip to cheer on the Vandy Boys on their quest for a World Series title.
“I was honored, humbled,” he said.
Vanderbilt plays Tuesday night in Omaha.
