Hunter Hillenmeyer has a game ball Devin Hester gave him. Here's why.
Before my interview with Hunter Hillenmeyer at his home Monday morning, August 5, for a RedEye story about Bears video game players, Hunter showed me his few pieces of memorabilia from his playing days. His prize possession is a game ball from the 2010 season that Devin Hester gave him. This was the ball that Hester returned for his NFL record-tying 13th combined kickoff or punt return touchdown. In this video above, Hillenmeyer explains why Hester gave him the ball.
