WATCH: Bullied student Keaton Jones visits Tennessee facility
Over the weekend, a video of a Knoxville middle schooler, Keaton Jones, went viral on the internet. In the video, Jones discusses the bullying he’s faced.
After the video became popular, many in the sports world decided to reach out to the young Jones and offer him the opportunity to come visit them.
On Tuesday, Jones visited the Tennessee football facility, as you can see in the video shared by WR Tyler Byrd below. Jones was given a tour of the facility and also got to meet new AD Phillip Fulmer, who coached the Vols to the 1998 national title:

Being a Knoxville native, this was probably a great experience for Jones, who also received a visit from redshirt freshman QB Jarrett Guarantano recently.
The kind gestures from athletes and everyone else is nice to see for the bullied child, who now probably feels a lot better about himself. Jones will now have some cool stories to tell at school in the coming weeks.
