Video: Thomas Rawls surprises young fan on Christmas

Thomas Rawls is a talented running back who stepped up as a rookie this season and showed that he is more than capable of making an impact off-the-field as well. A young girl received his jersey on Christmas as a gift, but little did she know that she would get to meet the player on her jersey.

Her parents sent Rawls a video of her getting the jersey and it touched him so much that he had to set up a meet with her.

These stories don’t come out very often, but Christmas time seems to bring out the best of them. Rawls is a class act and has a very bright future with the Seahawks. There is a good chance that he will be their long-term starting running back with Marshawn Lynch being rumored to be on his way out this coming offseason.

Here is a video that was posted to Instagram of Rawls and his new friend:

She has loved watching @caged_catalyst since his first pre-season game! #seahawks
