‘The Team Needed Him’: 16-Year-Old Clemson Fan Rises From Wheelchair at Pivotal Moment in Game

Logan Wires is “the biggest Clemson fan ever,” according to his dad, Bill Wires — who spoke to CBS Sports.

During Saturday night’s back-and-forth showdown between Clemson and Louisville, 16-year-old Logan — who has cerebral palsy and cannot stand without assistance, according to his father — decided that he needed to get on his feet to support the team.

So without assistance, he did.

“During one of the lulls, I looked over to see Logan out of his wheelchair,” Bill wrote on Facebook.. “I was somewhat shocked and asked Logan what he was doing. He replied that the team needed him to stand and cheer so that’s what he was going to do.”

Clemson went on to win 42-36. But it is clear that the biggest champion in the stadium Saturday was not on the field.
