So when the rising sophomore quarterback made a surprise visit to meet the 28-year-old last week, Mixon had a priceless reaction.
"Oh my God," Mixon said as the 6-foot-2 quarterback came out of nowhere to surprise him at Arts 'n Autism in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

According to AL.com, Mixon is a 2011 Alabama graduate who attended Arts 'n Autism and now teaches the center's music program. When a friend told Hurts about Mixon's love of Alabama football, the Crimson Tide's starting quarterback went out of his way to meet Mixon.
What a touching moment.
