76-Year-Old Dad Is an Incredibly Animated Basketball Fan

Austin Gavin is one big fan of the University of Memphis basketball team, with recent video showing his rollercoaster reactions as he watched his beloved Tigers take on Clemson University in a closely contested game.

Heartwarming video posted by his daughter Lexy Gavin-Mather, who goes by the handle @lexygavinpoker on TikTok, shows Gavin repeatedly jumping out of his seat during the game’s twists and turns.

Thankfully for Gavin, his emotional investment was rewarded as his team came out with a narrow 79-77 win in this December NCAA clash.
