Former Ole Miss Rebel star and new Tennessee Titan’s offensive lineman Michael Oher made a return trip home to Memphis, Tenn. on Wednesday to share a special moment with the kids at St. Jude Research Hospital.

Oher and the Titan’s cheerleaders were on hand for a pep rally for children who are battling cancer.
In an interview with Michael Quander, a WREG News Channel 3 reporter, Oher stated that, “It’s a chance to take their minds of the treatment and things that they are going through everyday. For me to show up and for them to be happy for just a few minutes is great.”
The day was part of the NFL Play 60 campaign which encourages kids to get outside and play for an hour each day.
Along with cheering and signing autographs, there was food, activities, laughs and smiles.
