Well, this is very cool.
The Tennessee football team plays Vanderbilt this afternoon and they will be wearing these decals on their helmets in honor of Eric Berry, who went to Tennessee before the Chiefs selected him fifth overall in the 2010 NFL Draft.
Addition to our helmets today for @Stuntman1429! #BerryStrong #VFL pic.twitter.com/RqUOYBTUPN— Butch Jones (@UTCoachJones) November 29, 2014
VFL stands for Vol For Life.
Berry is feared to have lymphoma, a form of cancer. The Chiefs announced on Monday of Thanksgiving week that after some tests they believed Berry had lymphoma. He was sent to Atlanta where further testing is currently taking place. An update and definitive diagnosis is expected soon. He has already been ruled out for the rest of the Chiefs season and has seen a ton of support around the league.
