We reported during the offseason that someone has a prosthetic leg with Robert Griffin III’s face on it.
Well RGIII ended up meeting 13 year-old Rico Felix who was born with his umbilical cord wrapped around his leg which caused him to lose his it.
Rico was so inspired by RGIII that he put his photo on one leg and the Redskins logo on the other.
“He … he’s inspiring. When he got his leg surgery, it reminded me of me. See, as I grow, my bone grows, so I have to have a surgery. But he inspired me to get back up on my feet after I had surgery.”
Griffin didn’t know what to say when he heard about what the boy had done.
“I’m speechless.I don’t know what I can say about that, except that it’s an honor.”
Griffin said that this season will be dedicated to Felix.
“We’re gonna do it this year. We’re gonna do it for you.”
What a great gesture by one of the NFL’s youngest stars.
