8-year-old with cancer scores big at ECU spring game

GREENVILLE, N.C. -- The biggest play of East Carolina University’s spring football game Saturday came from Noah Roberts – an 8-year-old battling cancer.

Noah raced 50 yards for the touchdown during the final play of the scrimmage and the crowd went crazy. The team ended up lifting him up as a hero.

The ECU team took Noah in a few years ago and the players said he has made a huge impact on them.
