This Feel Good Story comes out of Exeter, New Hampshire about a 7th grader named Dejah Rondeau.

According to boston.com, Dejah Rondeau, who is the quarterback of her football team, was facing some bullying.

Dejah's Mom explained, "Some people don't want to accept a female quarterback. She has to put in 110 percent when others are putting in 50." Dejah was still looking forward to leading the team. She was wearing her number 11 jersey, just like her favorite player, Julian Edelman. 

When the Patriots and Edelman got news of this story, they decided Dejah needed to come take a tour of the trophy room with owner Robert Kraft and Edelman. He also had another surprise up his sleeve.


Edelman praised Dejah for her strength saying, "My respect level for you is just through the roof because you just ignored all the noirse and you played the game we all love." After expressing his admiration for her combating adversity, he handed her two Super Bowl tickets.

Dejah now has the best plans for Sunday's game. She will be in Atlanta watching her favorite player, and I bet she'll even wear that number 11 jersey.
