Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu made an impression on a family sitting behind him on a flight. The family was so impressed by Sanu that they wrote him a note thanking him for being a good influence on their son.
Sanu, who played at Rutgers, was on his way to New Jersey for his alma mater’s spring game. The family behind him was taking their son to Connecticut for hockey training.
This definitely put a smile on my face. ☺️ the little things. pic.twitter.com/OFKpwcho5H— Mohamed Sanu Sr. (@Mo_12_Sanu) April 22, 2017
Browns left tackle Joe Thomas was impressed when he saw the note, and he had some kind words for Sanu, too.
And Sanu earned praise from a mother for his interaction with her son, a young Rutgers fan, at the spring game.
Sanu’s teammates have said that he’s the biggest trash talker on the field, but it’s always in good fun. He’s also one of the friendliest players in the Falcons’ locker room, and he set a memorable example for this young hockey player.
