Wish granted, Tigers win
BATON ROUGE - A purple and gold wish came true for a teen with cancer.
Joe Wuellner and his family joined Les Miles on the field ahead of kickoff against the Arkansas Razorbacks. The 15-year-old is living with a brain tumor and currently going through chemotherapy treatment.
It wasn't his first time meeting the coach. Earlier this week, he got to have a bacon cheeseburger with Les Miles. The Make-A-Wish foundation made it happen.
Wuellner realized his dream had come true. He said, "I'm kind of in shock, I'm sitting next to Coach Miles."
The teen also joined Sports 2's Michael Cauble on the air on Wednesday to co-host his 10 p.m. sports segment.
Wuellner got to witness a dramatic fourth-quarter comeback by the tigers who won 31-27.
