Say what you will about Odell Beckham Jr., but you can never question his heart.

The New York Giants wide receiver got a request from Danny Richburg, father of Giants center Weston Richburg, via social media asking the NFL star to come meet a young fan and “fulfill one of his dreams.”

Beckham took to Twitter and asked how he could make this possible.  He eventually he flew to Amarillo, Texas on Saturday to spend time with Jayro Ponce, a 9-year old boy battling a rare form of cancer who calls Beckham his favorite football player.


USA Today reported that Beckham flew in to meet the family with no media present or aware of the trip.
