Football Players Grant Teammates Dying Wish, Carry Him Across Field

Some say there's no bond stronger than that of a football team.

When the Coffee County Trojans lost one of their own in Malik Sparkman, they decided to grant his last wish. The 18-year-old lost his battle with kidney cancer, and he simply wanted to go through the tunnel and be on the field with his teammates one last time. The Georgia team was happy to oblige before the funeral.
