What a year it has been for Purdue football.
But also, what a year it has been for Tyler Trent.
Trent’s story has been publicized this college football season, and the former Purdue student and current fan is being recognized once more. It was announced that Trent won the 2018 Disney Spirit Award:

Trent is battling bone cancer, yet has shown immense strength. He attended the Purdue-Ohio State game this season, when the Boilermakers thrashed the then-ranked No. 2 Buckeyes 49-20. Trent predicted the victory that night.
The Big Ten is becoming accustomed to winning the Disney Spirit Award, as in 2017, the University of Iowa’s “The Wave” tradition won the award.
The Home Depot College Football Awards show will air at 7 p.m. on Dec. 6 and will be televised on ESPN.
