FORMER BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY -- AND CHICAGO BEAR -- QUARTERBACK, JIM MCMAHON HAS RECEIVED ANOTHER ROUSING OVATION, IN THE WINDY CITY.

MCMAHON HEARD THE CHEERS, AS HE WAS HONORED -- BY THE "SPORTS LEGACY INSTITUTE" -- FOR HIS EFFORTS TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT FOOTBALL CONCUSSIONS.

MCMAHON HAS OPENED UP ABOUT HIS STRUGGLES -- WITH EARLY ONSET DEMENTIA AND SUICIDAL THOUGHTS -- WHICH, HE BELIEVES, STEM FROM THE MANY BLOWS TO THE HEAD HE ABSORBED, PLAYING FOOTBALL.
