ESPN's Heartbreaking Piece About Woodrow Wilson's Sergio Kindle and the Winters

On Monday, we directed your attention to The Times's tale of Sergio Kindle, the Woodrow Wilson High School grad one day away from playing in The Only College Football Game That Matters. A fellow Woodrow grad and good Friend of Unfair Park also directs our attention to an ESPN piece that aired earlier this week about the Longhorn linebacker and his "inspiration": Will Winters, son of Park and Recreation Department assistant director Willis Winters and wife Jan, who died in March 2005 after a blood clot following a foot operation. Chris Connelly's lengthy piece follows after the jump; I'd recommend taking with you a box of tissues.
