Just a day away from the Super Bowl, Eagles fans are stocking up on party supplies for the big game. Maybe grab a box of tissues while you're at it too. You're going to need them after watching Haason Reddick's mother, Raelakia, narrate a video from The Players' Tribune about Reddick's climb from South Jersey to the biggest stage in American sports.
“Play hard, play smart. Play safe. And show them who you are.”@Eagles linebacker @Haason7Reddick’s mom, Raelakia, has a special message for him ahead of his Super Bowl debut. 💚 pic.twitter.com/Ugt9pZWwIo— The Players' Tribune (@PlayersTribune) February 10, 2023
Reddick, of course, is a Camden native who attended Haddon Heights High School before walking on to the Temple football team. At the age of 28, Reddick is now a legitimate star player, delivering one of the best Eagles defensive seasons ever.
For those outside the Philadelphia area who may not be as familiar with Reddick, who's not a household name, Super Bowl LVII will be the time for him, as his mother puts it, "Show them who you are."
