It's been a tradition for the University of Rochester's football team to play St. John Fisher College in the Courage Bowl.
For many kids battling cancer, football isn't just about the plays or cheers from screaming fans, it's a dream left on the sidelines.
During the annual Courage Bowl, kids from Camp Good Days become part of the team as honorary coaches and cheerleaders.
This is the final showdown between St. John Fisher and the University of Rochester, after eight years of competition.
Gary Mervis from Camp Good Days says the Cardinals' new opponent for future Courage Bowl games will be The College at Brockport. Mervis says right now Brockport can only commit to the 2014 game so they plan to reach out to Buffalo state for next year.
"It's just one of those things, in our schedule things change for us, while we had the opportunity we enjoyed every minute of it. It's a liberty league that's what we play in and we're excited about it," says Scott Green, U of R coach.
This year's Courage Award was presented to the two Rochester Police Officers and U of R medical students who were instrumental in the Erie Canal rescue of a father and his two young children.
Fisher won the game 20-16.
