Former Georgia Football and current Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb stopped by the Cleveland Clinic to visit one of his biggest fans, Luke Clayton. The Breman, Georgia 10-year-old is at the famous Ohio medical facility to repair the benign rolandic epilepsy.
Luke gripped the sides of his bed when he spotted the 2018 second-round draft pick enter his room. Chubb came up and shook his hand. Luke seemed to not be able to contain his excitement as he clutched his chest in surprise and at one point appeared as if he'd burst into tears of joy.
Luke had long wanted to meet his favorite Bulldog, especially going through all his recent medical procedures, and finally got the chance thanks to Chubb, Everett Sports Marketing, and Luke’s family.
The two, while years apart, grew up only 20 miles away from each other with Chubb being a Cedartown High School graduate and Luke living in Breman.
This time last year, Chubb was preparing to help lead the Dawgs to an SEC Championship, which Luke was no doubt watching. This year, Chubb has made in Cleveland Browns franchise history with his 92-yard rushing touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons.
Chubb brought Luke some gifts including a shirt and a football.
The video of the meeting was posted to the @everettsportsmarketing on Instagram and no doubt will go viral.
