Young Gives Jersey to Hodgkin's Kid on Draft Day

New Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young didn't hold onto his draft day jersey for long.

He quickly passed it on to a 12-year-old fan.

Houston Texans linebacker coach Johnny Holland asked Young to visit with Archie Taylor Jr. The 12-year-old was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer in December.

Young autographed the jersey and called the meeting "a blessing."

Archie in turn promised to root for the Titans when they play the Texans. "It means a lot to me," he said. "I like his skills and how he plays. I like his friendship."

Young, who led the Longhorns to a win over Southern California in January's national championship game. "To see him smile right now, that's very exciting for me," he told Houston television station KRIV.
