Kyle Williams an NFL Comeback Story (with the help of a 7 year old)

Posted by Upper Hand | Sep 12, 2012 11:05:14 PM

Do you all remember the NFC Championship Game last year between the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants? It was an incredible game that ended with a Giants 3-point victory, the last stepping stone for the Giants’ magical run to a Super Bowl Title 2 weeks later. What you probably also remember is 
Kyle Williams and the disastrous turn of events that ultimately led to the 49ers demise. If you would like a refresher
read here. At the end of the day, you couldn’t help but (a) feel terrible for the kid and (b) wonder if he would ever play in the NFL again. Well, an off-season removed from the disastrous 4
th quarter, Kyle Williams is back and his resilience is incredible. As incredible as Kyle’s resilience is the role a 7-year old boy named Owen Shure has played in Kyle Williams’ journey back to the field this season. Owen, a huge 49er fan, decided he was going to do the uncommon thing after watching his favorite team catch a disappointing loss. Instead of blame, this 7 year old boy picked compassion & wrote his favorite player a letter. I love the insight, advice, compassion and support shown by this 7-year old:
“Dear Mr. Williams:
We just watched the playoff game. I feel really bad for you. But I wanted to tell you that you had a great season. You should be very proud. So I wanted to say thank you. I am your Number 1 fan.
Owen Shure
You’re Awesome” Yes Owen, you certainly are his number one fan, and maybe the number one fan. Check out the entire piece that ESPN produced on this situation -->

This is another one of the many reasons we love sports! We wish Mr. Williams an incredibly successful '12 season and career!   #TeamTRAINlete “
