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.
