- by Doug Samuels 1 year ago
We've seen a handful of teams bring a young fan battling adversity on the field to live out a dream a few times already this spring, yet everytime it gives us chills.
Over the weekend eight year old Noah Roberts, who is battling cancer was the latest spring game star, taking the final snap of ECU's spring game to the house.
As ECU offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley pointed out after the scrimmage, it brought a tear to his eye, and we'd be willing to bet that he wasn't the only one in attendance fighting back tears.
"If you don't have goosebumps or a tear in your eye, you might want to check your pulse after that one." Riley added.
Head coach Ruffin McNeil also looks to Noah for inspiration noting, "When I think of Noah, I forget any kind of hurt of complaint or pain that I may have."
