HEMPSTEAD, Texas -- New Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince
Young didn't hold onto his draft day jersey for long. He's passed
it on to a 12-year-old fan with Hodgkin's Disease.
Young responded Wednesday to a request from Houston Texans
linebacker coach Johnny Holland to visit with Archie Taylor Jr.
Archie was diagnosed with the lymphatic cancer in December.
Young, who led the Longhorns to a win over Southern California
in January's national championship game, autographed the jersey and
called the meeting a "blessing."
"To see him smile right now, that's very exciting for me," he
told Houston television station KRIV.
Archie, who vowed to root for the Titans when they play the
Texans, said he had a great day.
"It means a lot to me," he said. "I like his skills and how
he plays. I like his friendship."
Hempstead is about 50 miles northwest of Houston.
