Just a few days ago, the Rice Owls of Rice University in Houston, Texas defeated the Charlotte 49ers 27-7. This isn’t really the significant part, but rather a bit of background to an emotion postgame speech by Owls running back Luke Turner who played a critical part of the game.

While being interviewed by the media, he reflects on his time in the university and made special mention of his coach, David Bailiff. Back in high school, Turner broke his leg in senior year. Everyone wrote him off, except for Coach Bailiff who gave Luke a chance when no one else would. It just goes to show much of a difference people can make in each other’s lives.
