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".

According to Tracy Pierson's article on BRO, Coach Mora showed the video of Dominic to the team this morning and and said the team is "going to love him up!" In addition, he has arranged for Dominic to:

-- be Honorary team Captain for the game.
-- be joined by Brett Hundley for the coin toss at midfield.
-- receive a Hundley jersey made for him.
-- 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."
