Alshon Jeffery visited 2nd grade class that wrote him letters of support

This is so sweet for both Jeffery and the kids.

Alshon Jeffery is the kind of guy the Eagles are lucky to have, and will not be defined by the one of very few passes he let slip through his hands.

Following the team’s loss to the Saints last Sunday, second grader Abigail Johnson wrote the sweetest letter to let the wide receiver know that he was appreciated and shouldn’t get down on himself after his missed catch that resulted in a turnover. She also was sure to remind him that the Eagles couldn’t have won the Super Bowl without him, and that he’s an awesome player.

It wasn’t just Abigail who wrote kind words to the wideout either, with the whole class participating. Jeffery visited the West Chester school on Thursday, proving that he is just the best, and proving that Johnson and her classmates are examples of the great kind of fans Philly plays for.

He made these kids so happy, and he looks like he was having a great time spending time with them.

Jeffery played through injured ribs against the Saints, and has done far more good things in his time with the Eagles, than bad. He deserves all the attention and support he’s getting, even after being willing to put the entire playoff loss on his shoulders when he certainly didn’t have to — because there were more issues than just one missed catch.
