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.

The ailing sportscaster noted that Barnes was even sure to send an uplifting prayer to him after the coach’s team lost to the Texas Longhorns Saturday.
