And a child will lead them. And that literally is the case Saturday when the Louisville Cardinals host third-ranked and undefeated Clemson at Cardinal Stadium.

According to WAVE3/Louisville, 4-year-old Allen Norton, who has Down Syndrome, will lead the University of Louisville marching band in the fight song during the Cards' showdown with the defending national champion Clemson Tigers.

Allen is a huge Louisville fan and has quite a story.

In order to repair a congenital defect, he had open heart surgery when he was just six months old at Norton Children's Heart Institute.

Allen's parents say he has been doing great ever since.

Kickoff time for Louisville-Clemson is noon eastern.

Check it out. He is a FAN, isn't he?
