Browns' Richardson shows his heart, takes 17-year-old leukemia survivor to prom

It's been a busy weekend for me, so haven't gotten to put down all my thoughts about the Browns draft (happy, confused, happy again, confounded, satisfied), but it's really good to see the heart of the Browns #3 pick, Trent Richardson.

Less than two weeks before the draft, Richardson brought a leukemia patient, 17-year-old Courtney Alvis of Hueytown, Alabama, to her senior prom. She had been too sick to attend her junior prom.  Trent's own mother is a cancer survivor, and this seemed to be something very close to his heart.

I know Trent Richardson will be remembered for how many times he hits the end zone, and how much postseason success he can help the Browns too. But it's nice to know he seems to a be a good guy, also.
