Wide Receiver Scores Extra Points

College football's regular season is nearing its end, marked by homecoming games and Thanksgiving pig-outs. You've still got a few weeks to catch your alma mater before it's all over, but when you do, keep your eyes peeled for runaway wide receivers!

Running for a pass in the end zone, Mardy Gilyard streaked straight into the stands and crashed full-speed into seven-year-old Garrett Monroe. Realizing the frightened boy was crying, the University of Cincinnati wide receiver took off his helmet and gave little Garret a big hug.

Said Gilyard, "I wasn't going to leave until he told me he was OK."
