Jim Boeheim has been one of the biggest and most influential figures in Central New York for several years. Not only has Boeheim seen success on the court, but his impact on charities and organizations off the court are equally impressive. 'Jimmy B' was recently honored by the American Cancer Society for his work with Coaches v. Cancer and Tim McGraw helped in honoring the legendary coach.

The Syracuse Men's Basketball Coach was recently named one of the recipients of The American Cancer Society's 'Circle of Honor Award.' Many may not know that this disease and this cause hits close to home for the coach. He himself fought and defeated a bout of prostate cancer. The above video appropriately features McGraw's latest single 'Humble and Kind.' That is the song that fits this National Championship winning coach to a tee. He may be a little rough around the edges during the season, but his generosity for the community in which he lives is truly inspiring. Congrats Coach!
