It's been an emotional last few days for former Penn State defensive lineman Devon Still.
On Friday, the 2011 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year asked for prayers of support for his daughter, Leah, who had a complication from a stem cell transplant. On Saturday, the one-year anniversary of Leah's neuroblastoma diagnosis, he posted a picture of his new tattoo of Leah.
Finally, on Monday, Still learned that he and Leah will be honored with the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the 2015 ESPYS.
See Still's response to the honor below.
Very thankful and honored for my daughter and I to receive this award...now we definitely have to get? https://t.co/HnBO7Ldzyl— Devon Still (@Dev_Still71) June 1, 2015
