A heartwarming story coming out of the Eagles playoff defeat last Sunday got even nicer on Thursday.

Days after receiving an adorable letter from a second-grade girl, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery stopped by to surprise Abigail Johnson’s class Thursday.

Abigail wrote a letter to Jeffery following the Eagles' playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints, telling the receiver to “don’t give up” after he had a ball go through his hands for a game-sealing interception.

Eight-year-old Abigail’s letter quickly went viral, making its way to Jeffery. Her father, Raymond Johnson, shared pictures of Jeffery’s visit to Starkweather Elementary School in West Chester, PA. on Twitter.


The class even sang the Eagles fight song to Jeffery.
