LaJerrick Meets LaDanian Tomlinson

“… a day in which the 9-year-old boy who just wants to be normal got to feel really special.”

LaJerrick's first open-heart surgey occurred when he was 6 weeks old.

The 9-year-old has always wanted to play football, but his medical condition does not allow it. So LaJerrick wishes to be on the New York Jets football team with his favorite player, LaDanian Tomlinson.

At the Jets training camp, LaJerrick signs with the team. Tomlinson gives the boy a VIP tour of the facilities. Then LaJerrick suits up and heads for the field.

LaJerrick's wish was one of ESPN’s 2010 “My Wish” stories.
