(Foxborough, Mass) – Dejah Rondeau is in for a treat. The seventh grade female QB is getting the dream of a lifetime courtesy of the New England Patriots. She’s going to Super Bowl LIII!
Dejah, who learned she was headed to the big game while playing catch with her favorite player, Julian Edelman, (who she wears #11 in honor of) says she never in a million years thought that she would go to a Super Bowl and that she was Super Happy.
The good news comes after the Exeter, New Hampshire pre-teen was having a difficult time with her peers who were bullying her for playing quarterback on a youth football team.
After hearing about the trouble, the Pats invited Dejah to Foxborough to meet Julian Edelman and team owner Robert Kraft. It was during that visit that Edelman surprised her with a pair of tickets to Super Bowl 53.
No word yet on who Dejah plans to take to the game with her but it will more than likely be her dad. Dejah is one of 3 girls playing youth football in her town.
