A Better East Texas:Ciron Black

I want to introduce you to an everyday hero... Ciron Black.

He's a former Robert E. Lee football stand-out.

He's gearing up to play in the most important game of his life... The BCS Championship.

And he may soon be playing on Sundays in the NFL.

Pretty impressive, right? But what really stands out about Ciron is what he's doing off the field.

A few weeks ago he heard about a Louisiana boy named Michael Conger who loves everything about LSU football. While that's a pretty common trait among kids in Louisiana there is something uncommon about Michael, he is suffering from leukemia. Several weeks ago Michael's aunt wrote several of the LSU football players in hopes of getting them involved in Michael's life. One of those players had the heart and compassion to respond...East Texan Ciron Black. Since his first contact Ciron has given this young boy hope and inspiration. He generously gave him his SEC championship football signed by the entire LSU football team. Then in an even more touching move Ciron is making Michael part of the championship game by writing his name on his wristband. Can you imagine the thrill this kid will have, watching the game knowing that on the wrist of number seventy will be his very own name?

I'm sure Ciron's parents had something to do with building this young man's character so I salute them, and him. It's these everyday heroes that make this a better East Texas.
