In this day and age, any fan attending a national sporting event has the potential – and danger – to go viral by showing just about any type of emotion.

Wednesday night, cameras caught and lingered on a boy in an Arizona State jersey crying near the end of the Sun Devils’ First Four loss to Syracuse.

Naturally, Twitter did its thing.

Later that night, the ASU men’s basketball team provided some background.

It turns out the boy was Jacob, the son of ASU’s athletic trainer.

After a tough loss for both him and the Sun Devils, Jacob hugged every ASU player, including close friend Kodi Justice, as they returned to their hotel in Dayton, Ohio.

ASU finished its roller-coaster season with a 60-56 loss in the play-in round of the NCAA Tournament.
