Lee Corso’s Emotional Speech at College Football Awards (Video)
I was at the Kings-Flames game on Thursday night so I unfortunately missed the College Football Awards show. I generally love watching the show for many reasons. First off, who doesn’t enjoy watching highlights and celebrating sports? It’s always fun looking back on the year and reminiscing about what we got to see, plus it’s fun seeing the players in a different environment from the playing field. Aside from the three awards Cam Newton took home, one of the memorable moments was Lee Corso’s acceptance speech after winning the Contributions to College Football Award.
Tom Jackson, one of his players at Louisville, presented the award and they played a moving video tribute. In case you missed it, here it is via Jimmy Traina’s Hot Clicks:
It’s been a tough run for Corso recently, not only was his mascot head stolen, but more importantly, he has been recovering from a stroke. You could clearly see the love in the house for Corso after that presentation.
