Saints Super Fan Jarrius Robertson Gets Liver Transplant – Misses Draft
Jarrius Robertson, the fifteen-year-old super fan of the New Orleans Saints, was not able to announce the team’s 3rd-round draft choice in Philadelphia as earlier scheduled. As you all know he was on the waiting list for an organ transplant and was finally receiving the long-awaited liver back home.
“We finally got our hero,” Robertson’s Dad, Jordy, said in a shaky but overwhelming Facebook video, requesting for prayers from his son’s growing fan following throughout United States of America and the rest of the world.
Jarrius was expected to have undergone the surgery Saturday afternoon. According to a close friend of the family, he was upbeat, playing video games & “still hot” the Saints didn’t select LSU safety Jamal Adams in the 1st round of the draft.
Robertson updated his twitter status with a tweet about his surgery on Saturday.
