DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - His cheering brought fans to their feet at Ohio Stadium Saturday, but while he was lifting the crowd's spirits, they were lifting his.
Cameron had been to Buckeye games before but had never been on the scoreboard before, especially during the fourth quarter of a tight game.
"I was looking up and I looked like, 'Oh I'm on the Big-O-Tron' and then I started freaking out," Cameron says.
Afterward fans lit up message boards asking about the kid whose Scarlet and Gray passion was painted on the big screen for all to see.
Soon he was getting recognized.
"I get on the bus and I think it's a normal day and then boom I'm everywhere," Cameron says. "I'm like, 'Wow I'm cool.'"
But Cameron's enthusiasm for the sport he loves hasn't always been appreciated by other kids.
"When I was in Texas I was bullied a lot because I was the new kid and very small," Cameron says. "The only thing I wanted to do was just play football."
Now that he's back in Ohio, things have improved, but Cameron knew right away how he wanted to make a difference with his new-found fame.
"Donate to poor children and stop bullying," Cameron says.
So the family is asking for donations to be made in Cameron's name to anti-bullying causes like the StandUp Foundation and the National Bullying Prevention Center .
They're thankful for all the people who have already done just that.
One fan even offered Cameron tickets to this weekend's Buckeye game.
"I'm happy it's a night game so I get to stay up late," Cameron says.
Believe it or not the Buckeyes biggest fan once thought that Team Up North wasn't so bad.
"I liked blue and gold and not white and that's how I saw them as and when I got older I thought Michigan...no," Cameron says. "Then I got back into Buckeyes. My dad taught me well."
It's a lesson now on display for everyone to notice.
