It's a story bigger than sports, and you have to love seeing this.

Brianna Latiolais shared the story of Tuck and UL player Joe Dillon and now so many on social media are loving every bit of this story.

According to Brianna's post on Facebook, when Tuck was just six years old he met Joe Dillon at the annual UL fan day and that is when the relationship started.

Dillon showed the young fan attention at the event and the seed was planted. Not only did Tuck become Dillon's biggest fan, but he also made sure to attend the games at Cajun Field to watch his favorite Ragin Cajun.
