Over the last four months, Devon Still and his daughter Leah have captured the hearts and minds of NFL fans all over the country. From his barely making the Bengals practice squad to afford treatment for his four-year-old daughter-she’s battling pediatric cancer-to raising $1.25 million in jersey sales-his is the 11th most popular in the league-to donate to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Still’s story has been an inspiring one.
Now, Leah is set to attend her first game of the season tonight, when her dad’s Bengals play host to the Cleveland Browns in a crucial AFC North battle on Thursday Night Football. The team, Still, and of course Leah, will present the $1.25 million check tonight, before kickoff.
While Still and his teammates are undoubtedly busy going through their pregame routines, the former Penn State Nittany Lion took some time out to have a tea party with Leah this afternoon, because some things are more important than football.
