Texas A&M commit sends special gift to children he dedicated his season to
There has been a lot of negativity surrounding the Texas A&M football program the past couple of weeks.
Fortunately for the Aggies, one very positive piece of the team is on the way.
Five-star quarterback commit Tate Martell dedicated his season to a pair of 7-year-olds battling disease — Thaddeus Thatcher, who has leukemia, and Avery Huffman, who has Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, according to Scout.com’s Kevin Wade..
Martell led Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) to a 15-0 record and a national championship, and to celebrate the perfect season sent a special package of personalized Nike cleats with Thaddeus’ and Avery’s names printed on them to the children, according to Wade.
The cleats were blue and orange, the colors of the Bishop Gorman football team.
Avery already received a team package and gloves that included a special letter written to Avery with the headline “#AveryStrong.” The letter was to thank Avery for inspiring him throughout the 2015 season.
