A young North Carolina Tar Heels fan has become a viral sensation thanks to his wonderfully cute pregame routine.

A Facebook user named Amy Howe Hoots posted a video of a youngster (who may be her son) listening to the national anthem during a recent North Carolina game. Perhaps unintentionally, the boy sways during the playing of the anthem just like many players do.

Then, at the end of The Star-Spangled Banner, the young guy takes off his shirt to reveal a jersey underneath, just like a player removing his warmup jacket.



People are loving this video, as it has received more than 130,000 views in the days since it was posted.

North Carolina is 17-4 and ranked 13th in the country, but should things get as bad for the Tar Heels as they have for the Illinois Fighting Illini, perhaps coach Roy Williams could consider calling this kid up to the team.
