(CNN) — A Florida student obsessed with the University of Tennessee wanted to represent the Volunteers during his elementary school’s “College Colors Day,” but didn’t own any of their apparel — so he took the matter into his own hands.
Laura Snyder, his teacher at Altamonte Elementary School in Altamonte Springs, says he drew a “U.T.”, the university’s logo, on paper and pinned it to an orange t-shirt.
The article goes on to state the following:
“When the day finally arrived, he was SO EXCITED to show me his shirt,” Snyder wrote Wednesday on Facebook. “I was impressed that he took it one step further to make his own label.”
But by lunch time, the spirited Vols fan was in tears.
The article states that other students mocked the homemade spirit shirt, leaving the boy in tears.
After the teacher’s post (below) went viral, the University of Tennessee announced it was turning his “U.T.” design into an official T-shirt. (Scroll down to see photos, along with a letter from the boy’s mother.)
