Video: Butch Jones hands one player the best gift of bowl season

Before breaking out into position meetings, Butch Jones planned on handing out a few gifts to players who had their best practices during bowl prep.

Alex Ellis, a walk on tight end from Delaware, was called down to receive his gift and unwrapped it in front of the entire team. It's a very touching moment.

With all due respect, this has to be the best gift of bowl season anywhere, and is definitely the only gift that a player can call home with news of that is enough to bring any mom to tears.
