This video will give you chills and put life in perspective

Every once in a while a video is brought to our attention that shows a staff impacting lives and putting life, and football, in perspective that is worth sharing with the coaching community.
For the staff at Northern Colorado, inviting a boy named Austin Ervin to campus for a day impacted the lives of the staff and players in ways that no one could have predicted. Austin is a 13 year old boy from Las Vegas who suffers from closed-lip bilateral schizencephaly, which causes him to have up to 80 life-threatening seasons every day.
Austin and his dad (who is a pastor) spent a day on campus as a special guest, and the staff rolled out the red carpet for them both. This video really captures what that visit meant to Austin, his father, and the Northern Colorado football program and entire college community.
This is a great heartwarming story.
