Falcons’ Mohamed Sanu receives in-flight fan mail

Most stories seen about passengers’ experiences on airlines have been negative in recent weeks— but not this one.

After a flight last week, Falcons’ wide receiver Mohamed Sanu posted a note he received from a fellow passenger during a flight.

“Our son sat behind you on this flight and watched you,” the letter said in part. “He saw you studying your plays, watched you make (healthy) choices with your snacks, food and drink. He watched how polite you were to everyone. He is only 10 but just made an elite hockey team and we’re on our way to training in (Connecticut.) You are an inspiration to children and for that you should be proud!”

When asked, Sanu revealed what his healthy choices were on the flight.

The former Cincinnati Bengal caught 59 passes for 653 yards and four touchdowns in his first season with the Falcons.
