A lucky die-hard New Orleans Saints football fan got the opportunity of his life on Sunday. Jarrius Robertson has battled against biliary atresia, a rare liver disease, since birth. He has also been the biggest supporter of the Saints since before he can remember. “Pretty much the biggest Saints fan don’t even think about dancing in my endzone.” Which is why he was shocked and elated, when his favorite NFL team, surprised him with a contract last week to officially be a part of the team.

The superfan’s visit was complete with an interview from Fox Sports’ Pam Oliver, dancing on the field, pictures with players from both teams, and some pretty incredible suite seats for a bird’s eye view of the game.
Although his team lost, Robertson was not not deterred, and couldn’t have been more excited for the opportunity to hang with his favorite football squad.
Jarrius is still fighting liver disease. But you can help him with his transplant costs on his GoFund Me page.
