NFL Star Runs Over To Teen Fan To Make His Birthday Wish Come True!

Demetric Felton and football fan

In the moments before a game, Cleveland Browns running back Demetric Felton, Jr. noticed a young fan trying to get his attention in the stands. He jogged over to chat with the boy, who told him it was not only his first NFL game, but also his 16th birthday. The player kindly wished him a happy birthday, and when the teen asks him to score a touchdown for him, Demetric nods quietly and tells him, “I got you, bro.”

Later in the game, Demetric did just that. Video footage shows the player leaping to his feet holding the game ball, and without hesitation he runs straight over to the teenager and hands off the ball, as promised. The boy jumps into the air in glee, his dreams fulfilled.

This is one of those sports moments that really chokes you up! Players have such a powerful connection with their fans, and it’s beautiful to see them show how much they matter with gestures like these. Watch Demetric’s sweet act of kindness below, and don’t forget to share.
