FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KAIT) - Cave City native Canaan Sandy certainly had a birthday to remember Thursday. The Razorback superfan and his mom Ginger celebrated with a roadtrip.

They stopped to see friends in Little Rock and of course in Fayetteville.

The Sandys were surprised by the entire Arkansas football coaching staff. There was even a Hog Call social distancing style with head coach Sam Pittman.

Sandy was enshrined into the ESPN Fan Hall of Fame in 2013. Canaan & Ginger have traveled to watch countless Razorback football, baseball, & basketball games over the years. They’ve also watched Hog commits play at high school venues all over.

It’s great to see Canaan in great spirits this summer after he experienced a 2019 filled with health battles.
