Troy Fautanu’s girlfriend organized the whole thing and her little brother got to enjoy all the benefits.

Sports are an amazing opportunity for folks from different generations to come together and celebrate. One of the commenters on the post shared a story from their time playing football:

“I played Division II football at a school in the middle of nowhere, but those kids always looked at us like mega stars. What an awesome gift,” they wrote.

A lot of the fans praised Troy, sharing posts along the lines of, “And just like that, I’m a Troy Fautanu fan.”

Troy and his girlfriend’s super nice gesture is a reminder about the act of caring for one another. They didn’t get him something over the top to make themselves look fancy — they gave the kiddo something he’d cherish.

Happy birthday, T!
