From the view of a young child, high school students can seem like giants. More specifically, high school football players are like superheroes to six-year-old Lucas Vo. When seniors Keaton Robertson and Andrew Hanlin were invited to attend Vo’s birthday party by his brother Michael, they said they wholeheartedly accepted.

“I was kind of shocked about it just because I’ve never been asked to attend a little kid’s birthday party before,” Robertson said. “It was kind of cool for him to ask me.”

Robertson and Hanlin invited seniors Caden Cox and Preven Christon to attend with them, and together they ate and played football with Vo.

“I told him [Michael] I’d stop by, but I ended up staying for two hours,” Hanlin said. “I just played football with him. He had a great time.”

The players said they hoped that attendance would help make Vo’s birthday great.

“We wanted to surprise him,” Robertson said. “It’s a cool thing because we really didn’t have that growing up.”

The boys collectively bought a football, signed it and gave it to Vo as a birthday present.

“There’s always little kids that look up to you,” Robertson said. “Be a role model.”
