While the Detroit Lions may not be down in Tampa for the big game, receiver Quintez Cephus headed down south to his Georgia hometown to fulfil one little boy’s wish.
One of 10-year-old Aiden Rozier’s biggest wishes—to meet a real life NFL player. On Sunday afternoon he got his wish when Cephus stopped by to visit the fifth grader battling terminal cancer, reports Marvin James of 13WMAZ in Georgia.
Cephus was a star wideout at Stratford Academy in Macon, Georgia near where the little boy lives in Warner Robins.
“How Aiden smiles and how he puts smiles on other people’s face despite all the adversity he’s going through…that’s something I carry myself through all the adversity I’ve been through. God placed me in this position and it’s only right that I pay it forward,” Cephus said via 13WMAZ.
Cephus brought the fifth grader a signed jersey and some snacks—a pizza and hot wings—to make sure he was all set up for the big game.
