By Jeffrey Meyer | October 4, 2013 | 10:12am EDT

Northern Illinois' head coach Rod Carey knew a five year-old boy named Zach Dacy who is battling leukemia, was a huge football fan. Knowing this, Coach Carey invited Zach and his entire family to the team's practice where he got to "sack" the team's quarterback, Jordan Lynch.

Zach, who says his favorite player is the Green Bay Packers' defensive star Clay Matthews, got the chance to "sack" the QB just like his favorite player does just about every week.

After Zach sacked Lynch, the entire team lifted Zach up in their air and cheered him on.
