Coach Kill Visits Camp Oz

| No TrackBacks
It is well known that coach Jerry Kill has suffered from seizures in the past, but what is not well known is how much Kill tries to help others who have experienced a similar fate.

On Wednesday evening, Kill and his wife Rebecca visited Camp Oz in Hudson, Wis., and made a surprise visit to speak to about 100 kids and teens who have epilepsy.

During his speech, Kill told the campers, "I am just like you," and encouraged them to dream big and work hard to accomplish those dreams. He stressed that they are possible of achieving anything and that nothing can hold them back if they believe in themselves.

Before taking questions from the campers, Kill asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up. Many said actors and veterinarians, while one girl said a princess and another said he wanted to be seizure free as an adult.

One of the last campers to talk said he wanted to be able to make medicine taste like candy, which everyone in the room agreed would be a good thing.

Before leaving Kill answered every question, signed every autograph and took every picture that the campers asked him for to conclude a memorable night for all.
