Seven-year-old writes letter to injured Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell

Tuesday November 4th, 2014

Ole Miss receiver Laquon Treadwell's injury on Saturday was probably the most heartbreaking moment of the college football season. Treadwell fractured his fibula and dislocated his ankle when he was dragged down from behind just as he was about to cross the goal line to give the Rebels a lead. 

Treadwell is seven-year-old Tanner Harris' favorite player. So when Harris saw the injury, he broke down in tears, his father told The Clarion-Ledger. The next day, Harris decided to write Treadwell a letter.

The Clarion-Ledger has a photo of the letter Harris sent.

Dear Laquon,

You are my favorite Ole Miss football player. I enjoy watching you every week. For Christmas I am asking Santa to bring me a #1 jersey. I'm so sorry you hurt your leg and ankle. I hope you get better soon.

Your #1 fan

Tanner Harris

Treadwell will get better. He's supposed to be out for about four months, but Ole Miss is hopeful he'll be ready to go for spring practice.
