Every Saturday, Myles Galvan watches his favorite football player from behind a television screen but on Monday, the 10-year-old got to shake Seth Doege's hand.
"I introduced myself and I asked him what grade he was (in) and how old he was and where he went to school," Doege said after the two met.
Myles spent the past three years fighting leukemia.
He just finished his final chemotherapy treatment and to celebrate his success, his doctors at Texas Tech Physicians arranged from him to meet Doege.
"He showed me the locker room and he showed me his jersey he's going to wear against the Longhorns," Myles explained.
"I feel like he's my son," Al Khalil said.
Khalil is one of Myles' doctors.
"He's a wonderful boy. He's a little bit shy, but he's really a wonderful, wonderful boy."
Khalil said the sometimes deadly disease never affected Myles' spirit or his love for all things Texas Tech football.
Doege called Myles' strength motivating and a reminder of what's important.
"It kind of makes you realize that you don't have it bad, you know, especially coming off a loss. You think just because you lost a football game, the world ends or whatever it may be, but a kid like that brings up your spirits knowing he's been through a lot and you see the character and the heart he still has," Doege added.
Khalil said Myles is in remission, but it won't be for another five years before he knows whether the 10-year-old is cured.
He did say though, Myles has responded very well to his treatment.
