UCLA football: Blind 9-year-old who had brain tumor practices with team
The UCLA football program gave one boy the experience of a lifetime on Wednesday.
That day the team practiced with Cade Spinello, a 9-year-old boy who is blind after suffering a brain tumor years ago.
According to ABC-7 in Los Angeles, Spinello scored a touchdown in the practice and was lifted up by the players on their shoulders.
"Those moments for Cade, he identifies with them," Erin Spinello, Cade's mother, told ABC-7.
UCLA linebacker Deon Hollins said he was blown away by the influence he and his teammates had on Spinello.
"It just puts things into perspective," Hollins said. "That's what it's all about. The fact that we can make that kind of impact, you know, just to anyone, is just really amazing."
