What I'm reading: A touching tribute to Dad in Indy



Check out this story from my friend and former colleague Kyle Neddenriep of the Indianapolis Star.

A Fishers High player lost his father to a bloodclot on a Friday. The player, Matt Van Hoosen, didn't want to suit up for that night's playoff game, for obvious reasons. He didn't even bring his jersey.

Matt watched his team from the stands as it fell behind 6-3 in the first half, and then a coach asked him if he wanted to come out and play the second half. What happened next, with a jersey from the freshman team and pants that were far too small, was pretty darn inspiring and worth clicking this link to read.
