According to the comments the kid is the son of NW Athletic Director Jim Phillips. The best comment I read was along the lines of, "If you're going to be a sports fan this will not be the last time you cry"! Been there, done that! This thing is now viral, or course:

I think people have forgotten the meaning of the word hero.

I'm sure most of us can relate. A true fan of his team. Don't ever stop believing, buddy.

Looked a lot like me at times in that second half... Only I'm not as cute.

Kinda reminds me of that lady in Moraga. Maybe we bring that out in the opposing fans?

when they showed that scene the first time I shouted to the other people in my living room,
"That's me !!"

The video image above was from right after the guy laid out JWIII with a Flagrant 1. While I get "fandom" and love kids, for me that wasn't quite as cute a moment given the context.

Anyone that has raised a boy of that age knows that their emotions are at the surface and they have a heightened sense of what is fair. .......You hear " that's not fair " about 100 times a day....most outgrow it...those that don't become victim and conspiracy addicts ...:D
