OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- Before the Ole Miss-Vanderbilt game, fans had the chance to quench their thirst outside Vaught-Hemingway stadium at the "Awesome Lemonade Stand."

Ole Miss punter Mac Brown started the stand in his home of Minnesota when he was only in the seventh grade.

He was inspired when the father of one of his friends was diagnosed with "A-L-S," or "Lou Gehrig's disease."

It's just 25 cents for a glass of lemonade, and over the years, the stand has raised more than 70-thousand dollars toward fighting A-L-S.

The stand is making its first appearance in oxford this weekend, and brown's family is helping run it.

"He's just made this so much bigger than what it originally started out as, so, I'm just really proud of him as a sister, not only for what he does on the football field, or at school, or for the person that he is, but his heart, that kid has a bigger heart than anyone I know," said Brown's sister, Bailey Brown.
