Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu was just doing his normal thing.
He was looking over the playbook during his flight, likely thinking no one around him was paying him any attention.
But when you've been to the Super Bowl, people tend you recognize you.
After the flight, Sanu received a letter from the family that sat behind him on the plane. They thanked him for being a role model for their 10-year-old.
He posted it on Twitter and said that it put a smile on his face.
Here's what it said:

Sanu said on his Twitter that the mother handed it to him and said to read it later. He also revealed that he ate a banana and cranapple.
Just goes to show, you never know who's watching and the kind of affect you'll have on someone.
