KNOXVILLE (WATE) – A four-year-old boy surprised Peyton Manning at the Peyton Manning Classic Golf Tournament.
The tournament is a fundraising event that benefits both East Tennessee Children’s Hospital and Manning’s PeyBack Foundation. Standing on a table at the Fox Den Golf Course, A.J. Cucksey told Manning, “I think I know your favorite song.”
The Knoxville boy broke out into Rocky Top. After the concert Manning gave the 4-year-old a big hug.
Recently the entire University of Tennessee football program shared a special day with Cucksey and sent him home with a signed jersey so he could feel brave as he went through a number of rounds of chemotherapy.Previous story:Tennessee Volunteers root for Knoxville boy diagnosed with inoperable tumors
