FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A 7-year-old Iowa State fan photographed with TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin kneeling to speak to her in an image that went viral got to see her new favorite player again.

Abby Faber and her family attended the fifth-ranked Horned Frogs’ game Thursday night against West Virginia. She was wearing a No. 2 Boykin jersey when shown on the large video screens at the end of the first quarter, and got a huge ovation.

When TCU played Oct. 17 at Iowa State, Faber was an honorary captain and wearing a Cyclones jersey for the pregame coin toss, when Boykin leaned down to the girl in her wheelchair and asked, “What’s your name?” Fort Worth Star-Telegram photographer Paul Moseley took the touching picture.

The girl has a form of cerebral palsy.

A TCU donor provided a private jet for the Faber family to travel to the game from their home in Iowa.
