Patriots Player Surprises Girl Bullied At School For Playing Football With The Ultimate Gift

Growing up, girls are often told that football is only for boys, but 7th grade quarterback Dejah Rondeau was not going to let that stop her from playing the game she loved.


13-year-old Dejah Rondeau from Execter, New Hampshire knew early on that she wanted to play football.

"My dad loved football and he would watch it all the time with me," Rondeau told Seacoastonline. "So I really love the sport and I begged for years to be allowed to play."

And living in New England, Rondeau is of course a Patriots fan. Whenever she takes the field, she wears no. 11 in honor of her favorite player, Julian Edelman.

When the Patriots' wide receiver heard about the bullying Rondeau faced for playing football, he and team owner Robert Kraft decided to invite her to the home of New England Patriots and give her the surprise of a lifetime.


When Rondeau arrived at Patriot's Place, her first stop was a tour of the team's trophy room, guided by owner Robert Kraft.

Later they were joined by Edelman who seemed almost as excited to meet his young fan.

"I heard about your story, about going out there and having a challenge, of dealing with adversity because people not accepting this, that," Edelman said. "My respect level for you is just through the roof because you just ignored all the noise and you played the game we all love and that's football."


The two played catch and took a tour around Gillette Stadium, but that wasn't the only surprise Edelman had in store.

After asking her if she had any plans for the Superbowl, Edelman handed Rondeau two tickets to the big game.

"That was crazy," Rondeau would later say about the experience. "I never thought that would ever happen. I'm just really excited to go."

"When Julian pulled out the tickets, I didn't know what to say. I never in a million years thought I would go to a Super Bowl."

Rondeau was not the only one blown away by the incredible gift.






The story even warmed the hearts of some die-hard Patriots haters.





And while many fans were envious of the amazing tickets, all wished Rondeau a great time at the game.





Congratulations to Dejah for proving the haters wrong and showing what can happen when you refuse to give up on your dreams.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
