We hear so many bad stories about athletes being jerks. So we want to shine a little light on the GOOD stuff too . . .
MOHAMED SANU is a 27-year-old wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons. And a letter he got from some fans a few weeks back that went viral, because they wanted to thank him for being a GOOD role model.
He was flying to New Jersey for an event at Rutgers where he went to school. And they were sitting behind him on his flight.
Their 10-year-old son is on an elite youth hockey team, and they were on their way to Connecticut for a training event. After the flight, they handed him a letter. Here’s part of what it said . . .
Quote, “Our son sat behind you on this flight and watched you. He saw you studying your plays, watched you make healthy choices with your snacks, [and] watched how polite you were to everyone.”
Then near the end of the letter, they told him he should be proud of the fact that he’s “an inspiration to children.”
