The Love of the Game: Deven Jackson’s NFL dream

If anyone ever told you that football is just a game, they are sadly mistaken.   Football is a sport where lifelong friendships are forged, where the building blocks of teamwork are molded and the place where dreams are born.

For some, football is a true escape from the challenges and tragedies that life throws our way.  I encourage you to watch the video below of Deven Jackson and his recovery from  Meningitis.  Watch the journey of this young NY Giants fan and marvel at his inner strength. It proves sometimes, it doesn’t matter what team you root for…the love for the game is universal and can easily be found in a little boys smile.

The New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles may be NFC rivals, but they understand the magic in the game and how their stars can truly make a difference even in the face of the most adverse circumstances.  Watch Odell Beckham and Victor Cruz make Deven Jackson’s NFL dream come true.
