NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- A lucky teenager got to watch the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl Monday from a special seat.


With the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, 17-year-old Trey Leonard was named honorary captain of the bowl game at LP Field.


"He is just so excited and just overwhelmed with joy and we just feel very fortunate that it's happening,” said Trey’s mother, Cheryl Leonard.


Leonard, who is batteling an aggressive brain tumor, watched his favorite team Ole Miss win against Georgia Tech from the coaches’ bench.  He also got to help in the coin toss.
