I saw this as the top play on Sportscenter yesterday. With the way the tvs are in the mess hall there is no sound, so I was like "this has to be a sick kid or something" and when I read about it later in the afternoon I saw he has brain cancer.
Pretty awesome thing they did for him and it was kind of cool seeing the players chase after him and not jus tlet him run away to the endzone. Probably made it feel more realistic for the boy. Cool stuff.
