EDITOR'S NOTE: 3:45 p.m., May 29, 2018

Tuesday afternoon, Covenant Health announced that Danny Amendola will no longer be vising patients Covenant Children's Hospital during his visit to Lubbock. A change to the Dolphins' practice schedule necessitated changes in Amendola's itinerary.

Amendola is still scheduled to appear at the Lone Star Varsity High School Sports Awards Banquet on the evening of Wednesday, May 30th.

----------------------------------------

Original story: Newly-acquired Miami Dolphin wide receiver Danny Amendola is making his way back to the 806. This time around, Amendola will be featured as the guest speaker for the inaugural Lone Star Varsity High School Sports Awards Banquet.

However, before that, Amendola will be putting smiles on the faces of those who need it the most. The two-time Super Bowl champion and former Texas Tech Red Raider will visit Covenant Children’s Hospital at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 30. He will meet with pediatric patients to take pictures and sign autographs.

Amendola has not just been one of my favorite Red Raiders of all time, but he's also been one of my favorite NFL players of all time. Seeing that he will take time out of his schedule to talk to the patients and staff in the children's hospital warms the heart real nice.
