Memphis QB Jacob Karam Is Our New Favorite Sports Guy

There’s a lot to be said for sports celebrities who take time out of their schedule to visit children’s hospitals and give sick kids a little happiness, but there’s even more to be said for the ones who really seem to enjoy it, and give the kids a moment that really comes from their heart. That means so much more than a handshake and an 8×10.

Memphis quarterback Jacob Karam was volunteering for a scavenger hunt at at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital when he sat down at the piano to accompany 11-year-old Breanna Bercegeay — currently battling AML Leuemia — on a song. They ended up playing TEN.

This just made my night. QB from University of Memphis Football team came by to visit. He was playing the piano for the kids.. Well my child had to be the one singing to all of his songs. She didn’t want to stop… This was one of the 10 songs she sang with him. I hope next time she won’t have to wear the mask. We even got invited to watch a game :)


Here’s a clip of them performing Jessie J’s ‘Price Tag,’ and I have never enjoyed that song so much.

I want to give this entire video a hug. You’re an awesome guy, Jacob Karam.
