Josh Dobbs Surprises a little boy with a brain tumor.

Josh Dobbs Surprise

Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs is known for being a fan-favorite, and for his accessibility for the Vol supporters that love him. So maybe it isn't that shocking to see what Dobbs did over the weekend.

In conjunction with Special Spaces of Knoxville, Dobbs gave 5-year-old Tennessee fan A.J. Cucksey the surprise of a lifetime. Cucksey, who is stricken with an inoperable brain tumor, received a new play room stocked with UT memorabilia. 

Best of all, he got to hang out with Dobbs, who has known the boy for some time. Warning: these videos might make you choke up a bit.
