LSU football: Les Miles invites cancer-stricken teen to game

Les Miles coached LSU to an impressive 45-21 win over Auburn on Saturday. More importantly, he fulfilled the dream of a cancer-stricken teen that day.

A few months ago, Miles surprised Sid Ortis, an LSU diehard fan who was diagnosed with bone cancer in 2014, with a phone call. The two spoke at length and Miles invited Ortis to take in a game at Tiger Stadium. Not only was Ortis present for the LSU win on Saturday, he spent time on the field and sat in the coaches’ box.

The incredible gesture from Miles seems to have had a big impact on Ortis. The boy’s mother posted on Facebook after the game that he “is feeling great” and “is having the best day of his life.”
