DeSean Jackson ESPN MyWishThe ESPN “My Wish” series is a feature segment in which athletes offer special experiences for children dealing with life-threatening illnesses. It’s one of those emotional features that you can’t help but keep your eyes glued to the TV. In it’s most recent segment, “My Wish” features young Donovan Troy spending the day with his favorite player, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Donovan had his spleen removed as a toddler and needs monthly blood transfusions. That still doesn’t prevent him from doing his end zone dance just like DeSean.

During his special day, Donovan goes through punt return drills, catching passes from Michael Vick, sitting through a film session in which Jackson and the Eagles’ coaches help him review his performance. After practice, Jackson takes Donovan to a recording studio and records a rap song with him, an experience he will never forget.

DeSean is one of those NFL players always giving back. He’s highly involved in anti-bullying efforts in schools in Philadelphia and Oakland, CA. He has a charity dedicated to fighting pancreatic cancer, which he lost his father to. It sure is gonna be exciting watching DeSean take those punt returns to the house in 2012!
