Giants’ Saquon Barkley reaches out to young fan denied autograph by DeMarcus Lawrence
Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence didn’t want to sign for a New York Giants fan, who was wearing a Saquon Barkley jersey. The star pass-rusher told the fan he was wearing the wrong jersey.
Luckily, Barkley is jumping in to save the day, as he recently reached out to the young fan, according to TMZ Sports.
Reportedly, Barkley invited the fan, 11-year-old Kamil Bautista—who hails from McAllen, Texas—and his family to the Giants’ game against the New York Jets in New York on November 10th. Barkley will fly out them to New York and will give him a meet-and-greet experience along with the VIP treatment at MetLife Stadium.
Bautista will undoubtedly get his autographs then.
TMZ Sports also connected with Bautista’s father, Jorge. He believes Cowboys owner Jerry Jones should talk with Lawrence about the matter and explain what he did wasn’t right.
Said the elder Bautista: “The reason we posted [the video] was not to get famous, to get money, to get somebody to call us. No. The reason we posted was, first of all, to show our kids you’ve got to be humble every single person in this world. And, second of all, to show to people out there that maybe didn’t go to the stadium or for some reason couldn’t make it that they see these actions of these players, and I’m hoping that maybe these organizations, the NFL, the owners of the clubs, sit down with them.”
While Jorge may not be too happy with the Cowboys, he should be when he gets the VIP treatment in the Big Apple.
