Nadin Khoury, the 13-year-old victim of a bullying attack that has shocked the nation, got a pleasant surprise while on “The View” Thursday morning.
"When I went out there I just thought they were going to ask me questions," said Nadin.
DeSean offered him some encouraging words. He then gave Nadin his jersey, bringing the boy and his mother to tears.
"That's my favorite athlete, my favorite football player," said Nadin.
"I've always wanted to meet him, I never thought I would."
The Eagles pledged to have Nadin’s back and let him know that his family would be able to go to any Eagles game they wanted.

"It touched my heart as soon as I heard it," said DeSean.
"I just wanted to support this guy."
It was a touching moment in what has certainly been a tough time for Nadin. With his accused attackers still in custody, the Upper Darby resident has brought new attention to the country's bullying problem.
"For something that was bad, really bad to me, it turned out to be a good thing at the end," said Nadin.
"Good things do happen."
