Tuesday Round-Up: 11-Year-Old With One Hand Inspired By Shaquem Griffin

Eleven-year-old football fan Daniel Carrillo, who was born with one hand, shares an emotional response to the Shaquem Griffin jersey he received as a gift on his birthday.


Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today - Tuesday, October 23 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Happy Birthday, Daniel

Video surfaced on Twitter this past weekend of 11-year-old Daniel Carrillo, who was born with one hand, opening Seahawks linebacker Shaquem Griffin's No. 49 jersey as a gift on his birthday. The emotional scene with Daniel, who plays football and calls Griffin his inspiration, has received quite the buzz on social media, and by way of a Seahawks fan it made its way to Griffin, who recorded an encouraging response back to Daniel.

"Hey, what's up, Daniel? Shaquem here. I just wanted to say happy birthday. I saw the video, it was very touching. I had to stop watching because I'm around a lot of fans and stuff, but it was very touching, man. Hopefully we can get you down to a game or something. Hope I can meet you one day. I'll be seeing you soon Daniel. Happy birthday again."

CNN also picked up the story earlier this week and touched base with Daniel and his mother, Maylissa Carrillo, on the response the two videos have received thus far.

"It's one of the things that we really appreciate about Shaquem is showing everyone that he can do anything and nothing's going to stop him," Maylissa said. "It gives Daniel that inspiration to do the same things."
