Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery surprises 2nd grader who wrote encouraging letter

Alshon Jeffery surprised a second grader after she sent some words of encouragement to keep his chin up following the Eagles lost to the Saints in the divisional playoff round.

With two minutes left in the game and the Eagles down 20-14, the team was driving to try and win the game with a touchdown and ensuing extra point. However, a Nick Foles pass to Jeffery slipped right through his hands and into the hands of New Orleans defensive back Marshon Lattimore.

It essentially ended the Eagles’ season and left Jeffery on the floor — literally.

Cue 8-year-old Abigail Johnson, who urged the receiver “don’t give up” and said the team couldn’t have won last year’s Super Bowl without him.

The letter went viral, prompting Jeffery to surprise her second-grade class at Starkweather Elementary School.

Jeffery posed for pictures with Abigail and her family, and the class sang the Eagles’ fight song to him.

Even the Eagles organization caught wind of the letter and Jeffery’s surprise visit, lauding him for being a stand-up guy.
