Praise rolls in for Duck uniforms that help child cancer patients

Kids modeling uniforms

It may never rain at Autzen Stadium, but the uniforms Duck football players will be wearing Saturday against Nebraska are already triggering some waterworks. 

Three pediatric cancer patients from Doernbecher Children’s Hospital at Oregon Health and Science University worked with UO football players and Nike designers to design the threads. The project was featured recently on ESPN.

UO offensive lineman Tyrell Crosby teamed up with 10-year-old brain tumor survivor Sophia Malinoski. He told ESPN the experience left him at a “loss for words.”  

"When we get suited up and put everything on, we're going to be representing more than just the University of Oregon," Crosby said. 

All proceeds from the sales of the sideline and fan gear will go to the pediatric cancer fund at Doernbecher.
