ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Brady Hoke is inviting the young Ohio State fan who named his cancer "Michigan" to see the Buckeyes play the Wolverines.
Michigan's coach has offered Grant Reed tickets to this year's matchup between the two rivals in Ann Arbor. A Michigan spokesman confirmed that Hoke called Reed and his family Monday.
Columbus, Ohio, TV station WCMH reports the 12-year-old Reed finished his final chemotherapy treatment a couple weeks ago. Reed's father, Troy, tells the station his son gladly accepted Hoke's offer.
When Grant was diagnosed with cancer less than two years ago, he chose to name his disease Michigan. He wanted to beat it — and he has.
