Aaiden Diggs, son of Trevon Diggs of the Dallas Cowboys, made the statement in a brief interview with his dad.
“Every time I’m with my dad I love it because he gets me picks and it makes me happy,” he said. “I love the whole world, I love God and Jesus, and I love my family.”
Both the NFL and ESPN tweeted out the young man’s comments, excluding his comments on his faith.
It does not get any cuter than Aaiden Diggs.

How about God and Jesus? Some of us square Christians watch the NFL, but we can do without it. We’re a big percentage compared to the woke @espn and nfl try to make happy. 🇺🇸
