WATCH: One-handed boy going viral after receiving Shaquem Griffin NFL jersey
Shaquem Griffin has been an inspiration to many during his football career. Griffin, who has one hand, was a standout defensive player at UCF before being selected by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2018 NFL Draft.
This week, Griffin reached out to one of his biggest fans who went viral on Twitter.
An 11-year-old boy named Daniel, who also has one hand and plays football, received a Griffin jersey for his birthday, and he had an incredible reaction, which was posted on Twitter. Then, Griffin eventually saw the video and tweeted a video reply to the boy, also saying that he wants to get him to come to a Seahawks game.
It’s an incredible gesture by Griffin for one of his biggest fans. Watch both videos below:
And being the great guy that @Shaquemgriffin is…he sent love back to Daniel!
Fingers crossed that these two get to meet! ❤️🏈
