 14-year old Matthew Costello has cancer and a brain tumor, and got to call the Ravens' first play from scrimmage in their game vs the Patriots. He said to give the ball to Ray Rice, he's hot. It turned into an 83-yard touchdown run. Since Offensive Coordinator Cam Cameron survived cancer, he reached out to Matthew, his son's teammate, and let him call the first play in their game vs the Bears, which turned into a incomplete pass, but was used later for a 14-yard touchdown grab by Todd Heap. The article is quite a compelling read, and is very heartfelt.
