His name is Derrick Nnadi. He's #91 for the Superbowl champs, Kansas City Chiefs. He just did something really cool to perhaps make him your favorite football player. What he did may make him your favorite person. Every dog at the KC Pet Project animal shelter is free to adopt thanks to Derrick. When he was a kid, he just wanted a dog. His parents wouldn't let him have one. In college, he got his first dog ROCKY and they bonded and he loved Rocky so much. When the Chiefs made it to the Superbowl, Derrick said if we win, he will pay off every single adoption fee. That's over 100 dogs. Those dogs are now free to adopt the moment the Chiefs became Superbowl winners. Now, that is what a true role model does. So, when someone asks you who your favorite football player is, you don't have to say Tom Brady anymore, just remember #91 Derrick Nnadi.
