ESPN’s Sunday feature on Steve Gleason is appointment viewing

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Everybody should know Steve Gleason’s story by now. The one-time WSU linebacker and savior of New Orleans was diagnosed with ALS 10 years ago and has become one of the world’s biggest advocates for ALS patients and a beacon of hope. He’s been awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, WSU’s Distinguished Alumnus Award, and has kept an amazing, positive attitude throughout his time with ALS.

On Sunday—Father’s Day—Gleason will once again inspire us. This time, it’ll be on SportsCenter for SC Featured, and it focuses on Gleason as a father. Here’s a teaser:

For those on the west coast, you’ll need to either wake up by 5 a.m. or set the DVR. I’m sure the feature will be online shortly after it airs, too.

This will yet again be another look inside the life of Gleason and his battle with ALS. It’s must-watch TV for sports fans, but especially Coug fans.

What’s your favorite Gleason memory? Here’s mine, and trust me, the “Go.....Cougs!” chant was MUCH louder in person:
