Mohamed Sanu has been making the best time for his NFL career over the years.
But things turn sour for the league after NFL was heavily criticized due to a national anthem protest sparked by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick back in 2017.
Further, back in 2017 April Sanu received a note from a family who sat behind him on a plane trip.
He posted a tweet regarding a note that was handed to him by a woman who sat behind him on a plane trip to Connecticut and the note says on the cover, ‘Read it later.’
First off, imagine an NFL star taking a commercial flight, he caught the attention of a family who will warm his heart forever.
Yeah the mom handed it me and said read it later and walks away lol https://t.co/R7fbOqv138

The letter wrote:
“Hi! You don’t know us but we wanted to thank you. Our son sat behind you on this flight and watched you, He saw you studying your plays, watched you make healthy choices with your snacks, food, and drink. He watched how polite you were to everyone, you are an inspiration to children and for that, you should be proud! Thank you and best of luck!”
It ended with a sign, “The family that sat behind you :).”
Such a little detail but surely made a huge impact on the kid’s life and for Sanu.
WPST-FM also reported:
Sanu came home to his native New Jersey for a celebrity kickball game and the event was to benefit a charity that helped the families of children with cancer.
He is currently involved with a project dubbed “Sanu’s Crew” that benefits the Embrace Kids Foundation, which supports the families of children with cancer and blood disorders.
Sanu also supports the children in local autism centers around Atlanta, New Jersey, and New York City.
We need more of Mohammed Sanu’s type as his heart is purely made out of gold.
