Young Fan Sends Newly-Drafted NFL Player Handmade Bracelets — You’ll Never Guess What He Does With Them!

A two-photo collage. The first shows Keon Coleman smiling in front of a mic. The second image shows a letter written by a 9 year old. It reads: Welcome to Buffalo Keon! Last summer I started making friendship bracelets to give to players to spread love. I wanted to send you some. I hope they fit (they stretch out). I can’t wait to see and hopefully meet you at training camp. Go Bills. P.S. the best pizza is Imperial. Try Wegmans Sandwich Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies with the frosting in the middle. From Logan B.

Taylor Swift fans aren’t the only ones who love making and sharing friendship bracelets. Logan Bittner, who is a 9-year-old Buffalo Bills fan, started making bracelets last year. He brought some to the team’s training camp practice, eager to connect with fellow fans. This great love for the Buffalos is what inspired his mom, Krystal, to find a fun way to help him practice his writing, something he’d been struggling with. Her idea? To have him write letters to players like Keon Coleman.

Because Keon is new to the team, Logan made sure to make him feel welcomed. In fact, his letter even includes local food recommendations since he’ll be new to the area, too. Keeping up with his love of friendship bracelets, this sweet kid also included two that he made specifically for Keon. Neither Logan or Krystal had any idea if any players would actually read the letters, but they know for certain that Keon did for the best reason.

That’s right — you don’t have to look closely to see that Keon is wearing one of Logan’s bracelets in his official rookie pictures. To say that the Bittner family is in shock would be an understatement!

“Logan is jumping up and down that Keon Coleman is wearing his bracelets — his letter actually made it!!!” Krystal shares on social media.

This kind gesture has truly meant the world to Logan. Mom shares that he’s been working on building his confidence over the past year, so being able to connect with not only Keon, but other fans in this way, is only helping even more.

“The last 24h have been absolutely amazing. Logan never thought his letter would reach Keon — let alone the world!” Mom admits. “He is the sweetest kid and the biggest Buffalo Bills hype kid. He struggles with writing and this has been a huge confidence boost. Kindness wins.”
