Here's a very nice story, courtesy of Big 12 writer Tim Griffin, about how Atlanta rookie William Moore will honor the memory of former college teammate at Missouri.

Moore initially was supposed to wear No. 24 for the Falcons, but he lobbied teammate Von Hutchins for No. 25 and succeeded in getting a switch. No. 25 was the number worn by Moore's former Missouri teammate, Aaron O'Neal, who died after a summer conditioning session four years ago.

In return for No. 25, Moore agreed to make a donation to the Lupus Foundation of America. Hutchins' mother suffers from that disease.
