For those who love cool stories, Zach Dacy's play will certainly grab your attention. The five-year-old, who is battling Leukemia, was invited to a Northern Illinois Huskies football practice, and he got a chance to show what he could do.

At the end of practice, Dacy lined up on defense and sacked quarterback Jordan Lynch. The folks over at For The Win found the story and the video.

Dacy also attended the team's game against the Eastern Illinois Panthers.
