YUKON, OK – A sixth grader in Oklahoma wrote letters to the owners of all 32 NFL teams asking why he should be a fan.

He got just one letter back.

According to KSLA News 12 in Oklahoma City, 12-year-old Cade Pope was hoping to figure out who he should be cheering for.

He received just one response, from Jerry Richardson, who founded the Carolina Panthers.

In a hand written response, Richardson listed several players he wanted Pope to watch. Richardson also sent a replica team helmet.

The note reportedly stated:

“Cade we would be honored if our Carolina Panthers became your team, we would make you proud by the classy way we would represent you.”
