|Being the face of the Panthers defense could http://www.cheapdolphinsonline.com/shop-by-players-laremy-tunsil-jersey-c-1_34.html not have prepared Luke Kuechly for the association he received after practice Thursday.
A young couple drove two hours to Charlotte, NC and waited almost another two to catch Kuechly’s attention on his way out of the stadium. Once they got him face-to-face, the soon-to-be parents had one question for the star linebacker: Could they film him revealing the gender of their twin baby boys?
“He walked up, signed a couple of things for other people,” Britt Johnson, an assistant baseball coach at Appalachian State, told ESPN. “He looked at us and I said, ‘We’re not here for an autograph. We were wondering if you’d do our gender reveal?’ I said we’re having twin boys and you’re the first to know besides us.
“I didn’t know how he would react. He smiled and said, ‘Yeah, that is awesome.'”
A smiling Kuechly gave the couple just the Twitter material they wanted to surprise their friends twofold.
“What’s up, guys?” Kuechly says on the video posted to Britt’s account. “I just got finished with practice. I’m here with the Johnsons and I http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-derek-watt-jersey-c-1_16.html wanted to say that they have two twin boys on the way. Congratulations.”
Britt and Samantha Johnson weren’t kidding when they said the four-time Pro Bowler was the first to know the news. As soon as they left the doctor with the good word, they hopped in the car and headed for their target.
“My wife looked at me confused and said, ‘Can we really do that, because that would be awesome?'” Britt said about their decision to take the reveal straight to Panthers stadium. “I responded, ‘I don’t know but we’re sure going to find out.'”
They got their wish and then some. Kuechly, 26, escorted them into the stadium for a quick tour after the special moment. Still no word on whether one twin will be named Luke and the other Kuechly, as Britt joked.
“You know how gender reveals are nowadays. People are popping out of smoke and balloons,” Britt said. “This one really never crossed our mind as something we could pull off, and everybody said it’s the best gender Jeff Locke Authentic Jersey reveal ever because of Luke Kuechly.”
In the 2013 NFL Defensive Player of the Year’s mind, it was much simpler than that.
“It was an easy thing and they seemed like good people,” Kuechly said.
