First I'd like to apoligize to the mods if they determine that this should be part of the other thread. I thought it would get lost there and it's a story that should be read by all.
picked up this story and I know many were wondering what the full story was. Apparently Stephen has lived with luekemia for 3 1/2 years. He was a member of his Grain Valley, MO football team. His father's side of the family are huge Michigan fans and he grew up loving Michigan. When Make a Wish asked what his wish would be he said to be a Michigan recruit for a day.
This started when Jake Long knocked on his door with a arm load of recruiting letters from the Michigan coaches.
I'll let you read the rest in the story but I will say his dog's name is Desi which made Desmond Howards appearance that much more meaningful.
I'll add a few pictures here but there are more at the link.
Most importantly, Stephen is in remission. July 24th is his cure date which means he has been in remission long enough to be classified as cancer free.
All day today, the football program has been hosting Stephen Loszewski for his Make A Wish.
The whole day has been filmed by ESPN and will be shown next month on Sportscenter during their "My Wish" segment.
Per @umichfootball, he has just committed to Michigan.
Desmond Howard was there

Haterz commence the hating. Per a snippet of an interview that will be used for the 2014 preview magazine of the The Wolverine, Funchess himself said he has currently been timed as the fastest player on the team. Measured in at 6'4" (and I believe he said 3/4, but wasn't clear... and don't know how to write six-four-and-three-quarter inches numerically), 235 lbs., hand timed at 4.33. The hand-timing was done by the coaches, I believe Wellman, though that was implied and not explicitly stated.
Raymon Taylor is the second fastest. He said something like "Jay-Lu" was the third, which actually sounded like Jayru on the audio. My assumption is that was Jourdan Lewis, but could have that totally wrong.
Sam intimated that Dennis Norfleet - to those who this news may cause to haz a sad - is likely the fastest in a 20-yard window.
