Meester of the Jaguars helps young boy walk
Six-year-old Luke Akerstrom was left in a wheelchair after a bout with encephalitis. Brad Meester and others visited Luke while he was in the hospital and a friendship developed between Meester's family and the young boy. Luke told his mother, "I have to walk because Jaguars don't roll, they run."
