Zach Dacy, a 5-year-old leukemia patient, is an inspiration to everyone who meets him. In September, Northern Illinois invited Zach and his family to a Huskies football practice. Zach is an avid football fan, and according to Huskie Wire, his favorite player is Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews. The highlight of the day was Zach lining up like Matthews and sacking Huskies quarterback Jordan Lynch. “He’s going through a lot right now, I think that’s the least we could do,” Lynch said. “We made his day and he gave me a pretty good shot.” Check out Zach’s awesome moment in the video below.

All 9 Red Sox starters have a hit and a run scored. Just the 3rd time that's happened by ANY team in MLB postseason history, 1st since 1936.— Jon Shestakofsky (@Shesta_Sox) October 04, 2013 Video of the Day This polar bear has some pretty good dribbling skills.
