Kid who returned Nate Sudfeld’s first career TD football was invited to visit the NovaCare Complex

Seems like everything worked out for Sudfeld and the young Eagles fan.

In a moment of pure celebration following a late-game touchdown against Washington, Nelson Agholor did what many do, and sought out a young fan to gift the football. Unfortunately, he didn’t realize that it was also Nate Sudfeld’s first career touchdown and should probably have gone home with the quarterback.

The good news, the kid — 10-year-old Cohen Zechman — was amazing and returned the ball to Sudfeld, who offered him a swap with another football from the Eagles sideline.

“The ball boy came over right away and gave me a new ball,” Zechman said, according to Fox43. “Later, I found out it was Nate’s first career touchdown pass, so I wanted him to have it.”

It got even better for the young guy, with Agholor finding him after the game and signing his new ball, and two other players giving him their gloves.

On Friday, the Eagles went a step further in showing their appreciation for the young fan, and invited him to the NovaCare Complex.

Great fans. Great players. Great team.
