Vernon Davis isn’t going to the Super Bowl but he is making sure a grieving family is.
The Redskins tight end is helping a family that is unfortunately grieving the loss of their son while donating Super Bowl LIII tickets among several other generous accommodations.
“Recently, Davis met the Howey family and their Redskins-loving 17-year-old son, Ryan, as he was undergoing treatment for brain cancer,” reads the Redskins’ official statement regarding the matter.
“Unfortunately, days after the meeting Ryan passed away.
Davis, with some help from the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation (WRCF), is doing what he can to help the family during an incredibly difficult time.”
“Davis immediately knew what he wanted to do with his two tickets to the Super Bowl and WRCF donated another ticket so that Ryan’s parents and his sister could all go to the big game together. Davis is paying for their flights and hotel accommodations as well.”
