Patrick Maks of ElevenWarriors.com, I am giving you a cyber standing ovation for this one.
Here’s the deal, in short: Joshua Perry, a junior linebacker at Ohio State, befriended a four-year-old little boy who’s bravely battling leukemia. As part of the developing and burgeoning relationship, Perry implored his Buckeye teammates via text message to record videos of encouragement for Joshua Chambers, the brave young man kicking the ass of the insidious disease.
Perry’s teammates responded in resounding fashion, with Chambers’ father forwarding what was described as “a flood of videos” to his son’s iPad.
