Bobby Petrino is back in the news because he is back in Arkansas.  I am not a football fan so why did I save this Arkansas Democrat Gazette news article? One reason!  An adorable red headed young fan was in the picture.  Let's blow it up!

Here is the enlarged picture of Tyler getting his shirt autographed by Coach Bobby Petrino.  See the adoration in his eyes!  He loved the Arkansas Razorbacks and the coach.  He was about 10 or 11 years old with a wonderful abundance of red hair!   Wonder where this shirt is now?  It may be valuable!!

Who is the girl in the picture?   Her name was not given in the article.

Barbara, your nostalgic post captures the heartwarming moment when young Tyler met Coach Bobby Petrino, radiating pure adoration for the Arkansas Razorbacks. The details, especially Tyler's red hair and the autographed shirt, add a delightful touch. It's a beautiful memory frozen in time! 🏈🔴 #ArkansasPride

Dennis, it is a lovely memory.  I didn't say why he is such a favorite of mine but he is the grandchild of a very close friend of mine! Thanks for the comment.
