FARGO—Bison Nation will be welcoming with open arms a new family to the Fargodome Saturday, Nov. 11.

According to a post on the official North Dakota State University Facebook page, the family of Lukas Kusters, on behalf of Heartland Chevy Dealers, will attend the next Bison home game against the University of South Dakota. Kickoff from the Fargodome is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.

Kusters, better known as the "Dutch Destroyer," was featured recently in a piece by ESPN's Tom Rinaldi. Kusters, a great football player himself, was diagnosed with stomach cancer when he was just 8 years old. Two years later, Lukas died after a courageous battle with the disease. But before he died, Lukas had one wish: to thank former NDSU and current Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.

Wentz and the Eagles have their official bye week next week, the same weekend the Kusters family is scheduled to be in Fargo.
