When they went into GameStop, Jaden went over to the men and introduced her. It was Washington Redskins running backs Keith Marshalland Rob Kelley. Marshall asked Watt’s was it okay to buy the Xbox for Jaden. She said that was fine and Jaden even spoke to the players about why he wears the jersey proud even if he’s a Cowboy’s fan. One man even wrote about witnessing the amazing gesture on Facebook. We are so happy for Jaden!
