Jeffery is receiving a ton of support after last weekend's game.
It was a sad scene for Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery last Sunday when he dropped a pass that ended up being intercepted by the New Orleans Saints. The play ended the game and the Saints ended up advancing to the NFC Championship game. After the play, Jeffery laid face first on the field, upset with himself for dropping the ball. He was even consoled on the sidelines by his coach Doug Pederson and quarterback Nick Foles.
While Jeffery felt bad over the loss, an eight-year-old second grader named Abigail Johnson sent the wide receiver a heartwarming letter where she said it's okay that the team lost and you can't win them all. She also said the Eagles wouldn't have been able to win the Super Bowl without him last season.
Jeffery surprised Johnson at her school on Thursday and got to meet all of her classmates at the same time. The kids sang Jeffery the Eagles fight song and seemed pretty excited to meet an NFL player. You can even hear some of the kids asking if he could sign their Eagles merch.
While it must be tough for him that they lost, at least he was able to turn it into a positive.
