The 2023 Pro Bowl games had a surprise visiting reporter on the sidelines. It was 10-year-old Jeremiah who was back to his reporting duties at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas as the Raiders’ Pro Bowl correspondent. He interviewed an array of NFL stars who were supremely impressed with the youngster’s skin in the game.

Jeremiah had the opportunity to interview some NFL greats, both past and present. 2x Super Bowl Champion Eli Manning, Vikings wideout Justin Jefferson, and San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle were some of the highlights for Jeremiah’s activity-filled media day.

Jeremiah dazzled the professional media personnel with his well-thought-out questions. “What do you think the Manning household will be like if you and your brother Peyton faced each other in the Super Bowl?” the kid reporter asked the younger Manning brother. Also, he asked Eli who brother Cooper Manning will root for. And Eli thinks it’s Peyton. However, Mother Manning is on Eli’s side.

49ers’ George Kittle was equally impressed with young Jeremiah. “This season he got 60 receptions for 765 yards, 11 touchdowns, 12.8 yards per catch, and this is his 4th Pro Bowl,” said Jeremiah, the walking encyclopedia, while introducing Kittle. “Wow, what an intro,” Kittle gasped.

Up next, it was Minnesota Vikings star wide receiver, Justin Jefferson. “This season he has 128 receptions over 1809 receiving yards, 8 touchdowns, and he averages 14.1 yards per catch,” Jeremiah introduced Jefferson. However, Justin was not expecting the hard-hitting journalism coming his way.

The NFL changed Jeremiah’s life

Last month, Jeremiah’s universe was turned upside down when he interviewed Davante Adams of the Las Vegas Raiders. However, Jeremiah asked the all-important question to Justin. The origin of Justin’s viral dance step, the ‘griddy’.

Jeremiah brought up the Vikings and Tennessee Titans game when Kirk Cousins connected with Jefferson for a touchdown and the griddy was born. “However, as you are on your way to the end zone, you do the griddy. Did you think that the dance move would take off as it did?” he asked a bewildered Jefferson. “Whose son is this?” Justin asked jokingly.

However, Justin taught Jeremiah his patented dance move. And the 10-year-old didn’t have too much difficulty picking up the basics.

Besides, it didn’t end there for Jeremiah. He also met up with Pro Bowlers Josh Jacobs and Maxx Crosby. However, the biggest surprise was yet to come for Jeremiah. The Raiders and the NFL are sending the talented young journalist to Super Bowl LVII with a bag full of Raiders merch. “You earned it,” Crosby said as Jeremiah hugged it out.
