Following the heartbreaking loss suffered by the Philadelphia Eagles at the hands of Alshon Jeffery, the receiver was sent a heartfelt letter of support. It came from a second-grade girl named Abigail who is a huge fan of Jeffery’s.
Jeffery apparently saw this sweet letter and made arrangements to surprise Abigail and her classmates in school on Thursday.
MUST WATCH: Alshon Jeffery @TheWorldof_AJ surprises the 2nd graders from West Chester who wrote him letters of encouragement after the @Eagles loss to the Saints. Such a special moment – we told them we were trying to FaceTime him 😂#FlyEaglesFly#Eagles@6abc pic.twitter.com/WYgpPKb6VZ

And, boy did this surprise go off without a hitch. It seems the kids — who all wrote letters as well — were only expecting to try to reach Jeffery by FaceTiming him.
When Jeffery walked in, the kids were overwhelmed with joy. And, the receiver made a great effort to give all of the children high-fives.
This is an uplifting story to hopefully cheer up Jeffery who looks to have a bunch of young Eagles’ fans for life.
