Here’s a great moment: Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette absolutely made the day of a wheelchair-bound fan prior to Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.


Per Brett Martineau of CBS 47 in Jacksonville, the fan, named Kevin, traveled from Chicago to Arizona to meet Fournette, and when he got his wish, the joy was obvious on his face.

Fournette’s Jaguars lost 27-24 on a last-second field goal. Fournette himself carried the ball 12 times for 25 yards, his lowest total of the season. But based on what he did before the game, he came out ahead nonetheless.
