Notre Dame Football and a Boy Named Montana

I ran across this article on Yahoo Sports about a child named Montana who had an inoperable brain tumor. He also had a love for Notre Dame Football. The head coach, Charlie Weis, visited him in the hospital and during the course of his visit, and after a lengthy conversation, he gave Montana the opportunity to coach the team and call the first play on offense.

Weis asked Montana if there was something he could do for him. He agreed to let Montana call the first play against Washington on Saturday. He called “pass right.”

Montana never got to see the play. He died Friday at his home.

Weis heard about the death and called Mazurkiewicz on Friday night to assure her he would still call Montana’s play.

“He said, ‘This game is for Montana, and the play still stands,”’ she said.

I can imagine that movie studios are clammering for this one. Take a look at the article and read the ending for yourself.
