Purdue superfan & bone cancer fighter Tyler Trent joined SVP on ESPN's SportsCenter last night

By the time Purdue sophomore Tyler Trent was 18 years old -- he had been diagnosed with bone cancer twice. The committed Purdue football fanatic is determined to live life on his own terms despite the terminal diagnosis. Tyler not only has the support of his family and friends and the Boilermakers football team -- he also recently met ESPN's Scott Van Pelt. Trent joined SportsCenter with SVP over night to talk about the Boilermakers' huge upset over the Ohio State Buckeyes, how his cancer treatment almost kept him from going to the game, how he stayed positive by listening to Stuart Scott's ESPYS speech for "literally about a year straight," and to make a bet with SVP for the Purdue vs Maryland game later in the college football season.

And then he got a job offer.
