'Hall of Fame' Arkansas fan has special moment with his Hogs

Canaan Sandy is as dedicated as college sports fans come. Last weekend in the spring game, his Arkansas Razorbacks gave him a chance to make a play.

College football fans don't come more dedicated than Arkansas fan Canaan Sandy.

There aren't many college sports fans as dedicated as Canaan Sandy.

He's a diehard Arkansas Razorbacks fan who drives hours for football, basketball and baseball games and shows up anywhere he can to support the Hogs.

"He's been at a bunch of Razorback events with me," head coach Bret Bielema told reporters on Saturday at Arkansas' spring game. "He's on a world tour I think. Every time I turn around, he's there. He's just got one of those contagious personalities."

Given his commitment to the Hogs (he was recognized by ESPN as a "Hall of Fame" fan last December), it was awesome to see the program give Canaan a special moment on Saturday.

Lining up in the backfield with quarterback Brandon Allen, Canaan took the handoff and rumbled 50 yards for a touchdown.

The best part?

After Canaan did a TD dance and was mobbed by the team, he flexed his biceps for the camera and blew kisses to the crowd.
