Chesney was in Bangor performing on the waterfront and prior to the show was presented a University of Maine Football game jersey and helmet by Athletic Director Karlton Creech who tweeted a photo of their meeting backstage.

Chesney played high school football in East Tennessee and always jokes that he was too small to play in college. An example of his love of the game is displayed in his song The Boys of Fall. You can check out the video for that song below.
