The USC football program made one young fan’s day during Wednesday night’s practice.
10-year-old Taylor stopped by the practice on Wednesday as the team’s special guest, when he was involved in an incredible moment.
The young boy, who is battling leukemia and recently underwent a blood transfusion, took the field with the USC offense when he caught a pass from star quarterback and Heisman Trophy favorite Sam Darnold.
That’s when the entire Trojans team rallied around him and cleared a path to the endzone where he went in for the score and the entire field erupted into celebration.
Keely Eure of USCFootball.com had the details and video of the special moment.
