Audrey said, “A normal player would probably be like I do not have time for this. I have to focus on next season or the playoffs. But he took time out of his busy schedule to take me, so that was quite special.”
The 30-year-old Harris, joined the Eagles this past season after 6 years with the Vikings. He talked about what he learned from the night. Harris said “You gotta cherish these lovely moments. You never know how long we have here on this globe. So, the people that you care about you and you love, view support for them.”
The mother of Audrey informed the news channel that the evening was “beyond a blessing”. I was so worried, anxious, and excited for her because she just had the most dreadful year. For someone to view up and to teach her that people do show up for you, it is just been beyond a blessing. Just the power of God and how he makes these situations occur has just been incredible and never forgettable.”
