Pitt star Conner befriends ailing Erie boy

The pain racing through James Conner's hip was so intense he was forced to do the unthinkable:

He sat out the second half of last year's Pitt/Syracuse game.

But before going to the sideline to watch the remainder of Pitt's 30-7 victory, the star running back turned his attention to a 6-year-old boy to whom he had made a promise.
