You probably can’t even recall what you got on your sixth birthday. If your parents were smart enough, they probably didn’t waste a penny, either, knowing you wouldn’t remember any of it ten years down the road.

But you can bet on Nolan Whitehead remembering his sixth birthday, after his father, Mark, who attended Tennessee, turned his backyard into a small replica of Neyland Stadium for his son’s birthday party.

Now, it’s only August but this guy is an immediate contender for father of the year. And don’t be surprised if this field is taken care of beyond little Nolan’s birthday so that Mark and his close friends could live out their lifelong dreams of playing as Volunteers with “Rocky Top” blaring in the background.
