9-year old Dominic Cumo is "going to be loved up" by the Bruin Football team as part of the Spring Showcase. He will serve as a Honorary Captain for the game.

UCLA Coach Jim Mora announced via Twitter this morning that Dominic Cumo will be a guest of honor at UCLA Football's Spring Showcase on Saturday.

Dominic is 9 years old and is the youngest person in the world with ALS also known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease".

-- be joined by Brett Hundley for the coin toss at midfield.

-- get his choice of field passes for the game or a location in a suite.

The article also notes that Dominic has given Coach Mora a new moniker: "Best Black Belt Extreme Coach of Coaches."
