Though the Michigan Wolverines are hated rivals of the Michigan State Spartans and Ohio State Buckeyes, the latter two teams will be wearing decals on their helmets tomorrow in support of former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr’s five-year-old grandson, Chad.
Young Chad is battling an inoperable brain tumor and is currently in hospice care, and the decals will feature a silhouette of him flexing with the words “#ChadTough” and “ChadToughFDN” surrounding him.
Angelique S. Changelis of The Detroit News first reported the development.
This is an excellent gesture on Ohio State and Michigan State’s respective parts and a great sign of love and respect to Carr and his family.
Losing a family member is never easy, especially a child, and this showing of solidarity and spreading awareness of Chad and his foundation is the best that both teams can do in tomorrow’s game.
