Default Memphis QB Plays Piano for 11 Year-Old Cancer Patient

http://www.cbssports.com/general/blo...cancer-patient

This is an article/video of Memphis starting QB Jacob Karam playing piano while an 11 year-old girl cancer patient sings along. This takes place at St. Jude's hospital, a place Karam apparently visits frequently to volunteer.

The best part of the story to me is the fact that nobody knew he was there doing this. The university officials found out when the family posted the video to a Facebook page. The family didn't even know who he was until he had visited with them for hours.

Anyway, it's really worth the read. A refreshing reminder among all the negative sports stories in the past few weeks that there are really great people playing the sports we love.

With the bad in CFB that gets hammered to death by the media these stories need to be told more.

It absolutely drives me nuts that the media in today's world pays no attention to stuff like this. If they spent half as much time talking about this as they do Braun and Hernandez, this world may actually be a little better off.

This guy is the number one pick in next year's human draft. Way to make a difference.

it absolutely drives me nuts when people don't understand why the hernandez and braun stories are talked about as much as they are

its because they are, for the most part, unprecedented.

ITS NEWS, PEOPLE.

Yes, feel good stories happen- and deserve air time, but they happen a lot (which I'm glad about...I wished they happened MORE) but the fact is- feel good stories are not unprecedented. do you think this is the first time a FBS QB did something nice for a child with cancer? I'm not minimizing what he did, its awesome...but its not rare, like these other stories such as hernandez and braun.

A point that can be made is that the people that do things like this do not draw media attention to themselves and their actions. Their friends and family know how great they truly are but these people do not do it to hype themselves.

I even bet that they appreciate the lack of media attention on these types of actions.

Another point is that the media also did not make a big deal of Braun and Hernandez's personal lives - until their personal lives affected their teams and sports legacies.
