JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Region 8 boy's legacy will live on at Arkansas State University.

Brenten Cox of Ravenden Springs passed away earlier this year after battling a rare brain tumor. He was 10-years-old.

Despite the fact he wasn't old enough to attend A-State, he made a big impact there. A-State Assistant Football Coach Trooper Taylor even officiated at his funeral.

Brenten was a huge Red Wolves fan, and because of the passion and love he had for the football program, a locker has been dedicated to him through the Arkansas State Locker Scholarship Campaign.

Brenten's mother posted a photo on Facebook of a letter she received from the school regarding the locker.

The letter states, in part, "He touched many lives and left an everlasting impact on the hearts of those who had the blessings of meeting him."

Brenten's locker will be #22.
