Meet George Gring, the Panther's Newest QB



Sometimes you see something cross your Twitter feed which you don't realize is truly special. But then there was the simple gesture EA Sports made to George Gring, a young man battling Burkitt's lymphoma, a rapidly growing cancer.

Thanks to aggressive treatments, George's cancer is currently in remission.

Gring became the Panthers' No. 1 Make-A-Wish draft choice thanks to the Make-A-Wish foundation. Wade Gring, George's younger brother and his acting agent negotiated a sweet deal for George which included a large bowl of candy.

During his time with the Panthers, Gring got to experience a practice with the team as well as answering questions in the post-game press conference. And now, thanks to one small gesture from EA, George gets to see himself in Madden NFL 15 complete with his 99 toughness rating.

There is no word on if George will actually be in the game in any form, but it's certainly an awesome gesture by the Panthers, the NFL, and EA Sports.

I wonder if he's going to become Cam Newton's mom's favorite player?

Very cool btw!

I love this stuff. It never gets old seeing these teams take in kids battling health issues. Unfortunately not everyone does. I remember some people were actually upset when 2 make a wish kids made it into madden.

As a father of a son (just turned 5) who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia 2 years ago, I really admire athletes, teams, video game companies, whoever that do something like this.

Kudos to EA and the Panthers.

Everybody complains about their life or at least something in their life no matter how lucky they are (myself included). It's stories like this that really remind you that some people actually have a reason to complain, but they never do.

Bravo to George on his incredible attitude and spirit!

Panthers one of the classiest franchises in football. The owner is a no non-sense gentleman. He'd rather go 0-16 with classy players than 16-0 with players who embarrass the team.
