Former Clemson defensive tackle Grady Jarrett is sending 12-year-old Taeden Johnson to Sunday’s Super Bowl matchup between the Chiefs and the Buccaneers following a family tragedy, according to an article by ESPN.

The article mentioned that Taeden lost three family members in a house fire last week. 

From ESPN:

Johnson escaped the fire in his family's mobile home in Athens, Georgia, on Jan. 27 and ran to a neighbor's home to call 911. According to WSB-TV 2 in Atlanta, Johnson tried to go back into the mobile home to save his family members but Johnson's mother, grandmother and little sister died in the fire.”

“It will be the first NFL game for Johnson, who also got a pep talk from Jarrett about working hard, getting good grades, and believing in himself to achieve his dream of one day playing in the NFL.”

You may recall that Jarrett’s family home burned one day before the Falcons drafted him back in 2015.
