CAPE CORAL, FL - A teen who could light up a room. That's how Eddie Bugg's coach describes the sports phenom. "I believe he would have been playing on Sunday rather than watching on Sunday", said coach Mike Urraro alluding to the teen's potential to be a pro player one day. Eddie passed away from cancer a few days after Christmas. Urraro says one of Eddie's last wishes was to have his highlight reel shown on ESPN. Friends and fans took on the task of making that happen. They launched a Twitter campaign, #geteddieonespn. Urraro says thousands of tweets came in from all around the world. Their efforts paid off. Eddie's clip was show on Tuesday night as announcers gave play by play commentary about his abilities on the field.
