Throughout this season, Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still has honored his daughter Leah, diagnosed with a rare form of pediatric cancer, by writing the phrase "Leah Strong" on his eye black. But in Week 9, with Leah's approval, "Leah Strong" was replaced by "Lauren Strong," a tribute to college basketball player Lauren Hill who has just months to live due to an inoperable brain tumor.

Hill fulfilled a dream on Sunday by taking the court for Division III Mount St. Joseph's and making two layups.
