It's the bye week so many of the Kansas City Chiefs players are heading back to their college towns to catch a game. Not many of those players will be honored by their school like Eric Berry is at Tennessee this weekend.
"He'll be around our football team all weekend." - Butch on Eric Berry as he will be the Legend of the Game this weekend.— Paul Fortenberry (@Volquest_Paul) November 4, 2015
Berry is an inspiration to so many people that this will be awesome. This quote from Berry's younger brother in the Knoxville News-Sentinel is just amazing:
"I really just looked at him as my big brother, just knowing him all my life as just regular old Eric," Evan said. " ... I looked at him just as a big brother up until that point. Just knowing how he handled cancer, now I look at him as a superhuman. ... It's kinda motivated me to just live every day happy. Don't take anything for granted."
The last Tennessee game I know of that Berry was at his younger brother returned a kickoff for a touchdown. Tennessee hosts South Carolina this weekend.
And how about this for a KC connection: Berry's younger brother, Evan, is on pace to top the Tennessee kickoff return record held by .... Dale Carter.
