Kirk Herbstreit is showing he has a big heart.
On Sunday, the ESPN analyst used Twitter to invite viral bullying victim, Keaton Jones, to a College GameDay broadcast next year. Then on Monday, Herbstreit announced that he’s instead trying to bring the young boy and his family to the national championship game in Atlanta next month.
Video of Jones speaking about his experience with bullying went viral last week. Since, many have come out and offered their support for the Knoxville-area boy, including Herbstreit.
Cmon Kirk… get this kid to a playoff game or the Natty!!

Like your idea even better. Efforting as we speak to get a hold of Keaton to see if he and his family would be my guests in Atlanta for the National Championship! Hope we can make it happen. https://t.co/Gp558u4mEu

What a cool move by Herbstreit.
Here’s hoping the young boy’s family can connect with the analyst. It would be great to see Jones in Atlanta, for sure.
