Christmas came early for one fan during Arizona's game against the Chicago Bears when Cardinals linebacker Sam Acho gave a young boy the thrill of a lifetime.
After interacting with him from the sidelines, Acho handed the boy his glove as a souvenir. The small fan was so overcome with joy that he reciprocated with a big high-five before speeding off to share his excitement.
This isn't the first time Acho has been caught delivering smiles to young fans. Earlier this year, the linebacker was the subject of a video featuring an adorable encounter with a little girl during a preseason training camp.
Unfortunately the boy then watched his team lose for the 10th time in eleven games after a promising 4-0 start to the season. While Acho had a modest performance against the Bears, tallying only three total tackles in a 13-28 loss, it seems that his impact off the field had made a much bigger impact.
