LeSean McCoy signs autographed football for two young Eagles fans on ESPN

New, comments

Nice move.

As noted yesterday, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is out in Arizona at the site of Super Bowl 49 this week. Part of McCoy's media appearances included a segment with ESPN, during which two lucky young Eagles fans were brought up to the stage on live TV and got the chance to meet their favorite player. Pretty cool stuff - watch the video below via ESPN.com. I like how McCoy even admits he's not that fast.

And now for your "it's a small world after all" moment: these kids are actually the nephews of former Liberty Ballers (Philadelphia 76ers SB Nation site, which I also write for) manager Michael Levin. I reached out to Mike and he gave me the EXCLUSIVE inside scoop: Brayden and Austin reside near Phoenix, Arizona. Austin is a running back for his football team. Mike also wanted me to let you all know that he once live-tweeted Brayden's pee wee basketball game. So there you have it.

...

McCoy isn't a stranger to making connections with young fans. Back in October McCoy teamed up with Eagles quarterback Nick Foles to make a special day for 15-year-old cancer patient Colin Delaney.
