A Tennessee Titan fan got the surprise of a lifetime over the weekend.

Heather Milton was allowed to run onto the field with the team at Nissan Stadium.

Before the game, the team introduced her as the 12th Titan.


Melton's husband, Sonny, was one of the 58 people killed in the mass shooting in Las Vegas. He died while shielding her from gunfire. Sonny was also a big Tennessee Titan fan. 

The Titans are also donating $10,000 to the Sonny Melton Scholarship Fund.
