    From October 2018: By the time Purdue sophomore Tyler Trent was 18 years old, he had been diagnosed with bone cancer twice. The committed Purdue football fanatic is determined to live life on his own terms despite the terminal diagnosis. Tyler not only has the support of his family and friends, but also the Boilermakers football team.

My history teacher showed this this to my class this morning and I was literally holding back tears, probably because I had a friend that died of lymphocytic cancer which does this, he luckily was like this for only a few days before he passed after getting cancer for the 3rd time

RIP TYLER!!! I am hesistant to type more yet feel compelled. I personally want to thank you and your family for transcending sports, transcending Purdue with your positive impact on humanity itself. I am an Auburn Alumnus...I have the same passion for my Tigers as you do your Boilermakers. I know your looking down on all who have you in their hearts and minds and perhaps are still surprised now knowing just how many you have positively impacted. There are so many facing challenges, battles which because of you being selfless allowing strangers to learn about you has and will help us fight and battle a little harder ourselves. For that, I'm thankful Purdue played Auburn...I do not have access to TV or ESPN beyond internet...Without Auburn playing Purdue I would have missed out, not been blessed by you, your family, your story. Auburn seems to be much like Purdue...with emphasis on family, having really tight-good people who are fiercely loyal and filled with love for family which includes the University Family..we at AU do not say "AU Nation" we state "The Auburn Family" and Purdue certainly seems to be the same... If not for the game last week I wouldn't have taken time to research current happenings with Purdue...I had no clue about their record and how close they were all year...I wouldn't have known about the beat down of Ohio State (THANK YOU FOR THAT!!!) but more than anything I would not have learned about your story...I wouldn't have searched for all I could about you, about what true battles are, I wouldn't have researched anything about what I came to respect by the leaders on the Purdue team, their sincerity...I would not have seen Coach Brohm in the light I do now...and moving forward I believe countless # of people who have no affiliation with Purdue will always think about the Boilermakers, even rout them on in any sport but more so when think about Purdue...few will ever think about Purdue without also associating you & thinking about you...Most of us have personal stories of sacrifice, of tragedy especially with this horrific evil which attacked you...which has attacked family members of mine... I pray for the Trent family, all those who knew you personally...and will continue to be blessed as you touch them from the heavens...thank you Tyler and thank you to your family for allowing your story, your strength, your heart to be shared with all of humanity...God Bless you all.

RIP.... But let me ask why only when its a white person its get prime time TV time????? Black's or Hispanics don't get prime time TV???? Cancer don't care who it affects but white ppl in this world do and only pic who makes it to the prime TV! 2 Hispanic little kids just died in the hands of the government, you don't see them getting honored by a sports team on prime time TV do you??? Black,brown,yellow!! But I bet this kids family will end up on Ellen just like every white family does!!! And yes I know how it feels to have a family member deal with cancer...my mother is a cancer survivor thanks to GOD!!!

Praying that God softens your heart H V. Neither Sir Tyler, nor the diverse Football team members seemed to recognized each other as anything other than brothers in Christ. God bless you Tyler as you reside eternally in the presence of our Father . . you gave selflessly despite your pain to raise national awareness of cancer. The millions of dollars raised for cancer research during your illness and particularly the last few painful months of your life will benefit cancer patients of all races, ages, ethnicities, socioeconomic backgrounds. You were an earthly hero, Sir Tyler, a child of our loving God who carried out God's purpose for your life. Blessed are we that you were divinely placed in a position to help and inspire others. You fulfilled His calling well. Looking forward to the day I meet you in heaven Tyler.

My sympathy goes out to Tyler's huge family, not just in name, but his Purdue family and all of the B1G teams and fans who have been cheering him on since learning about his fight. He was a tough opponent, but his body said it was time. My prayers are with you all.

It boggles my mind how people like this can maintain such a positive mindset. I mean, I’m an 18 year old kid who’s lost every single opportunity to play sports due to injuries and now, I’m easily irritable and pretty much walk around like I have a stick up my ass. I can still play but not competitively, and it really gets me mad. Meanwhile, this young man who had so much taken away from him still manages to crack a smile. However, when he broke down crying, it broke me as well, knowing that you can tell people you’re fine and that everything’s ok, but there are those things....these...dark.. things on the inside that sometimes gets the best of us. I never heard of Tyler until now but he’s definitely sparked something in me, and I hope I can use it to change for the better. Tyler, you were taken way too soon bud but I really hope you found the peace and comfort you were looking for. RIP.
