Lauren Hill gives Bengals player signed jersey from college basketball debut
(Nov. 21, 2014) – Lauren Hill, a college basketball player who’s battling inoperable brain cancer, gave quite the gift to Cincinnati Bengals tackle Devon Still.
Hill presented him with the jersey she wore in her first and possibly only college basketball game, WKRC reports.
Still’s daughter, Leah, is battling brain cancer. Still and Hill met when he attended one of her practices earlier this month. She’d promised to give him a jersey.
The NCAA allowed Hill’s team to play a game before the official start of the season so she could achieve her dream of playing college basketball.
In return for her kindness, Hill ended up with a signed jersey from Still.
