Video: Bob Stoops Makes Weekly Hospital Visits To See Sick Children, And It's Heartwarming

Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops has a personal tradition, and it is definitely one worth learning about. During the season, Stoops spends time each Thursday before a home game at The Children's Hospital at OU Medical Center, visiting sick youths. Stoops doesn't invite any media with him when he goes, as he says he wants each visit to be personal and intimate.

In this video feature from Oklahoma student Christina DeVincenzo, Stoops speaks about his trips to OU Children's Hospital. There's also an interview with the family of a girl Stoops used to spend time with who has since passed away. It's very touching, and we recommend watching all the way until the end for a surprise twist.
