One Tennessee fan has recreated a piece of Rocky Top in his own home, making a facsimile of the Neyland Stadium field in his front yard.

Mark Whitehead took to his lawn with some spray paint and a dream to recreate the school's iconic checkerboard patterned end zones and the orange “T” at midfield for his son Nolan’s sixth birthday, according to ABC's WATE-6.

Saturday's “Big Orange birthday party” also featured invitations designed to look like game tickets for the young Volunteers fan.

In one tweet, Whitehead even conceded that he may have been more excited for the party than his son was.
