James Conner, cancer-free, led Pitt onto the field and scored the first two TDs of the year

In December, Pitt running back James Conner was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. On Saturday, cancer-free, Conner took the field for the Panthers' season opener.

He had a ton of fans on hand to see him, too.

Here’s the moment he led the Panthers out onto the field. Goosebumps.

And in his first game back, he scored the first touchdown of the Panthers’ season.

He wasn’t done, either!

This is one of the best stories of the opening weekend of college football, and people are taking notice.
