He is one of UK's most famous fans. If you've been to a game, chances are that you've seen him.

He has thousands of twitter followers, a YouTube page and even a fat head of himself, and now a new smile!

"I mean it's been a long time coming since I last smiled when I was kid," explains Stone Cold Willow, also known as William Bolden. "I lost my teeth at the age of 13 and really I haven't enjoyed smiling since. I'm just thrilled to be happy again, I'm happy to be able to say I have a great smile."

A great smile that came as a gift from a very familiar face.

"He came up to me, Deron, and Brandon and introduced himself my freshman year," explains former UK basketball player Terrence Jones, "he was just always out there in his Kentucky jersey, he just left a big impression on us just making us laugh."

Jones wanted to leave a lasting impression on Willow. "We noticed him every game so as a way to show him our appreciation for his dedication to the team, I wanted to do something for him."

The proceeds from the song, 'Teach me about Kentucky', which is on itunes and features Jones, were set aside to help Willow.
Those proceeds, along with donations from Jones and TLC Dentistry in Lexington made the whole gift possible.

The proceeds made from the hit 'Teach me about Kentucky' will go to a college fund for Willow.
