Devon Still Leaving Daughter for Training Camp Is Oh-So-Emotional
The love Devon Still has for his daughter continues to touch a nerve with football fans everywhere.
This time, you’ll be touched by this Instagram video Devon made of him saying goodbyeto Leah as he prepares to leave for training camp with the Cincinnati Bengals.
We both knew this day was coming when we had to say bye but we didn't know it would come this soon. I was only willing to show this part of our goodbye because we both make the ugliest faces when we cry so I couldn't do us like that . On a serious note, I'm not leaving her to go out there and play around I'm going to handle business. My daughter has been through hell this past year and now I have the opportunity to make sure she gets the world from here on out. So I'm going to make sure she gets it #iDidntGrindThisHardToFail #LeahStrong #StillStrong #FocusedOnAnotherLevel
Leah has battled cancer for about a year and her dad, defensive tackle Devon, has helped raise awareness of her plight. Their story recently netted Devon the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the ESPYs.
You may not be a Bengals fan. Heck, you may not be a football fan, but there’s no way you cannot root for Devon after everything he and Leah have been through.
