Jacksonville Jaguars' Tom Coughlin visits children fighting cancer at Wolfson Children's Hospital

Tom Coughlin made a special visit to Wolfson Children's Hospital on Wednesday to meet several children fighting cancer.

For the Jacksonville Jaguars executive vice president of football operations, the day was about giving back.

Coughlin started the day visiting Connor, who came all the way from Manchester, England for proton therapy.

“I brought you this, and we got a few others things for you,” Coughlin said. “You look like you'd be a good looking linebacker if you decided to play football.”

Coughlin left Connor with kind words about the fight ahead.

“It's nice to meet you. And we'll be praying and thinking about you,” Coughlin said.
