Tragic Nick Madaras story lives on through soccer balls in Iraq

If you didn’t get a chance to watch ESPN SportsCenter over the Memorial Day weekend, you missed one of the saddest/most heart-warming stories ever.

His tragic story lives on by the thousands of soccer balls that have been delivered to Iraqi children in his name.

Check out his story on ESPN, but make sure you have a Kleenex or handkerchief to wipe your tears:
