Written by on February 7, 2022

Tennessee Volunteers basketball coach Rick Barnes does something incredibly touching every day: he sends prayer and Bible verses to Dick Vitale, a famed ESPN broadcaster suffering from cancer and other medical issues.

Vitale shared one of Barnes’ recent daily prayers in a tweet Sunday, expressing gratitude and calling Barnes “special” for taking the time to inspire him.

This kind gesture from Barnes comes as Vitale struggles with lymphoma and other issues and has taken the rest of the season off to cope with his health woes, Sports Spectrum reported.

Vitale said in a previous tweet that the texts from Barnes bring him to tears.

“His KINDNESS brings tears to my eyes when I read his daily text,” he said.
