NEW ORLEANS, La. (NBC Local 33)(Fox 44) – Gameday for the College Football National Championship is here, and much of the LSU fanbase is getting hyped for the matchup, including for a superfan.
The family of LSU Defensive Lineman, Breiden Fehoko, performed “The Haka” for Colton Moore, a young boy and avid LSU fan from Alabama.
In a video from his family’s Facebook page, Geaux Colton, the Fehokos could be seen doing the Haka in the lobby of a hotel for Moore.
Fehoko and his family often performed The Haka as a pre-game ritual for football games during the season, as seen in many videos and from many media outlets.
As for Moore, he and his family are in New Orleans for the big game after being gifted tickets.
Moore comes from a family that mostly roots for Auburn, LSU’s SEC rival, but Moore has bled purple and gold ever since watching the LSU Baseball team play in the 2019 SEC Championship Tournament.
Moore suffers from spina bifida, birth defect in which a developing baby’s spinal cord fails to develop properly, but he hasn’t let that slow him down.
After hearing of his story during the season, LSU Football Head Coach Ed Orgeron personally invited Moore and his family to meet him and attend the home game against Utah State.
Moore even got to attend the SEC Championship and Chick-fil-a Peach Bowl and watch LSU win both games.
LSU defeated Clemson 42-25 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Monday night.
