Georgia’s Make- A-Wish Foundation and the NFL’s L.A. Rams are granting Savannah State football player Kyle Frazier his wish.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation teamed up with the Rams to feature Frazier as a part of their Crucial Catch Captains program after the freshman beat cancer last year and requested to meet with his favorite team through the foundation. The NFL’s Crucial Catch mission is to fight cancer through early detection and risk reduction, according to the NFL’s website.
During the Oct. 26 Monday Night Football Game that will air on ESPN between the L.A. Rams and the Chicago Bears, a cardboard cutout of Frazier will be in the stands as a part of the Crucial Catch Game.
When told the news, Frazier insisted that every one of his teammates be included as well. The foundation and the Rams honored the request and will feature cutouts of the entire Savannah State football team alongside Frazier.
Frazier rang his cancer free bell in August of 2019 after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in April. He missed what would have been his first season playing for the Tigers last year, but enrolled in the spring of 2020 and played in the spring game in early March. Frazier is still in full remission and actively participating in practices and workouts.
Along with being feature at the game, Frazier will receive a customized Rams jersey with a Crucial Catch Captain’s patch. He’s also now a spokesperson for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
