Amidst all the mayhem, sometimes folks still shine.

Noah’s run



I don’t know what kind of season my alma mater East Carolina is going to have in the fall as they move to the American Athletic Conference, but they’re already winners in my book.

    8-year-old Noah Roberts is battling cancer, but one day before returning to the hospital, he had the opportunity to end East Carolina’s spring game by scoring a touchdown.

    Noah’s sister attends ECU and he has been a part of the team for two years, so during the final play of the Pirates’ game Saturday, Noah followed lead blocker Zico Pasut to the endzone.

    “Noah is special to us,” head coach Ruffin McNeill said. “I think of Noah, I forget any kind of hurt or complaint or pain that I may have.”

    After scoring the touchdown, Noah was lifted into the air as the Pirates chanted his name.

Got a little misty on that one.

    I have a good buddy with late stage ALS who serves as the same kind of inspiration for me.
    North CarolinaBe without fear in the face of thine enemies.
    Be brave and upright that God may love thee.
    Speak the truth always even if it leads to thy death.
    Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong.
    That is thine oath.
