Video: Chuck Pagano’s Inspiring Locker Room Speech

Occasionally, things happen on athletic fields that seem to transcend the sports that are being played.

If you have been following the Colts this season, then you know all about the battle that their coach, Chuck Pagano, has been fighting against Leukemia.

After a hard fought victory on Sunday against a much improved Miami Dolphins team, Coach Pagano surprised his men in the locker room and gave one of the most rousing and emotional inspirational speeches in recent memory.

I don’t even have children yet, and I had to fight off the tears.

 

If you would like to donate to the Leukemia Research Foundation, you can do so here.

Or, you could go to Midwest Sports Fan’s Movember page and donate to help fight men’s prostate cancer.

Cancer is a vicious enemy, but through men like Chuck Pagano’s inspiration every day, we can beat it.

About Jon Washburn

Jon Washburn grew up in Indianapolis, IN and as such, is a diehard Pacers, Colts, and Cubs fans. When it comes to college, he cheers for Notre Dame football fan and Purdue basketball. Yes, this sounds shady, but since he grew up without cable, he learned to love Notre Dame - the only team on TV. Glenn "The Big Dog" Robinson was at Purdue when Jon was in his formative years, so he latched onto them as well. Did that make him a fair-weather fan at the time? Sure. Give him a break...he was 8...and he has stayed with those teams ever since. Currently, he lives in Charleston, SC with his wife who grew up in Cleveland. Although he is no longer physically in the Midwest, his heart will always be there. Jon goes by the name "Twitch" because he has Tourette's Syndrome. Hit him up on his twitter @jwtwitch.
