    Little boy in the huddle after the game..

    Does anyone know the story behind the little kid (appeared to have some pretty bad burns) that the team held up high and sang the fight song with out in the middle of the field after the game was?

    I saw Judah Linder go up to him and shake his hand during the game.

    I watched it too. I don't know the story behind it, but when the team gathered around the boy, hoisted him up on their shoulders, and sang the fight song to him I got serious goose bumps.

    Didn't notice the little boy, but was very pleased to see the team singing the fight song together a couple times after the game.

    I haven't seen today's (Sunday) Register, and I hope it provides some info., but I seriously doubt it. It rarely prints stories which would make ISU and its athletes look good.

    Re: Little boy in the huddle after the game..

    Found info about him on CR. His name is Cole, he has myeloid leukemia. He's a part of with the Make A Wish Foundation. Has been through 8 rounds of chemo, bone marrow transplants, etc. He is now free of cancer.

    He got to go into the locker rooms, lead the team out on the field, etc.

    I wish all the best for the little man and his family and friends. Classy for ISU and Make a Wish to bring him in. Go Cyclones!

    Re: Little boy in the huddle after the game..

    This is kinda stuff that perhaps, as fans, we lose sight of. The Iowa State teams do so much for the community. Beyond wins and losses, seeing stuff likes this makes me so very proud to be a Cyclone.

    It really doesn't take that much to make a positive difference in someone's life.

    GO CYCLONES!!

    I dont. I hope the best day of his life is when he finally beats the cancer.
