Colton spent the day with LSU head coach Ed Orgeron (Coach O) and the team. Blake Ferguson took to Twitter to share a photo of him spending time with Colton using the hashtag #ColtonsCrew.

Jennifer expressed the journey from Odenville, AL to Baton Rouge, LA was not an easy one to make. Colton has spina bifida, a rare birth defect.

A GoFundMe page was set up to help fund Colton’s trip and provide a handicap accessible van for the family. The page description explains that Colton must use a wheelchair to get around, along with several other underlying health concerns.

Thanks so much Mickey and Emily for dinner tonight! We really enjoyed it! So Mickey is the sweet guy who mailed Colton…
