Moments like these are what make sports so cool.
On Saturday, the New York Giants hosted an NFL Draft party and brought 14-year-old Jared — a teenager with Make-A-Wish Foundation — on stage. He announced to the crowd that his wish would be to meet former Penn State and current Giants running back Saquon Barkley.
After making the announcement to the crowd, Barkley creeped up behind Jared, making his wish come true.
But Barkley didn’t stop with just a meet and greet. The star running back took the microphone a promised Jared he’d spend a full day with him, doing whatever he wanted to do. The Giants have also invited Jared to spend a weekend with the team.
Below is the heartwarming video. This is just one of the many reasons sports are so wonderful:
He only wished to meet @saquon. Now they’re gonna have a whole day together ❤️
