An Emotional Tom Brady Fights Tears When Kid Asks “Who’s Your Hero?” At Super Bowl Media Day.

There’s nothing like the pride I feel when well recognized celebrities take down their walls, give us a glimpse into their humanity, and challenge us to do the same. It’s impossible to forget the Carolina Panther’s player Cam Newton and his gesture for a little boy. After scoring a touchdown, Cam handed the football to a little boy that had just lost his dad. The moment was so beautiful.

Yesterday, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was taking questions in a Super Bowl Media Day interview when a little boy named Jonathan asked him a very important question. In his little voice, Jonathan asked Brady, “Who’s your hero?”

Brady took a moment to commend Jonathan for his important question… then simply answered, “Well… my dad is my hero. He’s the one that I look up to every day.”

As soon as the words left his mouth, Brady became visibly emotional. It’s abundantly clear how much the famous football player loves his dad and a great reminder for the rest of us… no matter how famous, rich or noteable you become your parents set the first example.

Check out the short video below and if you can, call your dad today!
