ICYMI - It is the Fathers Day gift that keeps on giving.
Former Oregon football running back Kenjon Barner gifted his dad for Fathers Day his Super Bowl 52 ring.
“My Number 1 inspiration! We made a pact way back in 2004 “You do your part, I do mine, What’s mine is yours and what’s yours mine” we’ve done exactly that! Love you Daddy I could never repay you for everything you have given to me and taught by setting an example on what a father is supposed to look like, be like and do! I never had to look for you because You were at every game, every practice, every sport from NJB, AAU, baseball, and football high school and college all the way up until I made to the league! I love you and thank you if I am half the father you are to me to my kids, they have the second greatest father of all time because I have the GREATEST! Love you Daddy.”
“This means more to me than anything, being able to see the happiness that this stuff brings my Dad means the world to me! This why I do what I do, the joy that my family gets from this game I play, is my why!” said Barnes in his Instagram post.
Barner played for the Philadelphia Eagles from 2014-17, and won the Super Bowl his final year with the team. The second ring comes from his short stint with the New England Patriots last season.
Now, the six-year player finds himself on his fifth team with the Atlanta Falcons on a one-year contract. Fun Fact: Barner and Tony Brooks-James both found roster spots on Atlanta this upcoming season.
