Devon Still Gives Jimmy V Acceptance Speech on Behalf Of His Daughter, Leah (Video)
Leah Still was this year’s recipient of the Jimmy V Perseverance Award. Unfortunately, she couldn’t make it to the ESPYs to accept the award in person because doctors said her immune system was still too weak to make the trip.
Accepting the award on Leah’s behalf was her father, Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still—who was also credited as a recipient of this year’s award.
While up on stage to receive the Jimmy V ESPY Award, Devon delivered an emotional speech that was capped off with a video message from Leah. You can watch it via the Tweet below:
