A longtime Georgia fan was treated to an incredible experience by Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray Thursday.

Mildred Bradford, 96, was taken on an exclusive tour of the Georgia football facilities by the Dawgs signal-caller himself, as tweeted by the UGA athletic department:

According to the Athens Banner-Herald, Bradford's tour began in the morning when she was greeted by Heather Spivey, a nurse at Athens Regional Medical Center who organized the meeting and tour.

When she arrived at Georgia's Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall, Bradford had no idea that she was going to meet Murray.

Murray waited for her arrival then appeared to surprise the elated Bradford, who could be seen planting a kiss on the quarterback's cheek in the Athens Banner-Herald's online slideshow of the tour.

The UGA signal-caller also signed a souvenir football and presented it to Bradford.

Also before the tour, Murray posed for pictures with Bradford as well as a group of nurses from the Athens Regional Medical Center.

Finally, Murray walked Bradford through the team's facilities—a tour that included a stop at Murray's locker.

The tour also carried through the UGA weight room. There, Bradford showed off some excellent lifting form while doing a quick set of chest presses.

While much of the college football offseason is filled with negative news regarding player discipline, it is incredible to see a feel-good story like this one.

It doesn't take anything outlandish to create an unforgettable experience for a fan.

Just like Murray and the UGA athletic staff showed, taking time out to put a smile on the face of a fan like Bradford is worth every minute.

Kudos to the Dawgs.
