The thought behind La.  Tech football’s letters to the Bresee family

EDITOR’S NOTE: An earlier version of this story misspelled the first name of Clemson defensive tackle Bryan Bresee and misreported the game she was going to be honored at.

The message and courage of Ella Bresee became known across the nation as she stole the hearts and impacted the lives of the Clemson football team while battling brain cancer.

The 15-year-old sister of Tigers defensive tackle Bryan Bresee, the Clemson athletic department was going to honor her during the Sept. 10 football game against Furman. Instead members of the football team made their way to Maryland for her funeral Tuesday. Ella Bresee died Thursday.

“Ella was such a sweet spirit, and her spirit will continue to live on throughout the Bresee family and everyone who had the opportunity to know her,” Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney said in a statement. “I am stronger today for having experienced Ella’s strength and courage.”
