Keaton Jones has captured the hearts of everyone on social media.
The kid from Tennessee emotionally spoke out about being bullied at his high school which led to an overwhelming response and people throughout the country expressing their support and love for the young kid they have never met.
Among those who have reached out are members of the Tennessee Vols football program.
A number of Vols took to social media to share their support of Keaton while also hoping to spend time with him to show him that he is never alone.
The video that generated the response was this:
It’s an absolutely heart-breaking video, but the reaction has been incredible.
Please let his mother know that we are trying to reach out. Keaton has some friends on the football team that would love to spend some time with him. https://t.co/tj1ZqDM4KD

Guaratano followed through on his promise and posted a video of himself and Tennessee Sports Radio host Jayson Swain on Sunday. The duo spent the day with Keaton, who Guarantano calls “the little brother I always wanted.”
So I got the chance to spend the day with my new best bud Keaton. It was unbelievable to get to know him and realize that we have a lot in common. This dude is very special and has changed my life forever. Now I have the little brother I always wanted! God bless you my man pic.twitter.com/vMHVtnf2rC

It’s always great to see the sports world rally together at moments like this. Hopefully the Vols and Keaton can continue their relationship as he continues his high school career.
Kudos to everyone who has been involved in bringing a smile to this young man’s face.
