SIKids 2012 Sportskids of the Year to be Honorary 12th Titans on Sunday

Posted by Gary Glenn on December 26, 2012 – 2:27 pm

Small-SI-Kids-Dec-CoverConnor and Cayden Long, the SIKids 2012 SportsKids of the Year, will be the honorary 12th Titans prior to Sunday’s Titans-Jaguars game at LP Field.

Their story is touching and one that is worth a read. Below is an excerpt from a recent issue of Sports Illustrated summarizing their amazing journey:

Seven-year-old Cayden is unable to walk or talk on his own, but his nine-year-old brother Conner had an idea that would allow them to participate in sports together. A year and a half ago, they began competing in triathlons together. Conner swims while pulling Cayden in a raft, bikes with his little brother towed behind him in a trailer, and pushes that trailer when they run.

Over the past 18 months, the pair from White House, Tennessee, traveled up and down the East coast to compete in races. Seeing the brothers working together has inspired onlookers, while bringing Conner and Cayden closer than ever. Their amazing determination and spirit is why the Long brothers are the 2012 Sports Illustrated Kids SportsKids of the Year.
