ALLEN PARK (WXYZ) - Young adults wearing Ndamukong Suh's No. 90 jersey during Lions training camp on Tuesday, July 31, will remember this special day for a long time.
"Any kid under 13 can meet Suh, and I'm just really excited to meet him," said Anthony Valentini.
"I get to meet Suh, and he gets to sign stuff [like] my jersey," said Brandon Gonzalez.
"It's really cool to see Suh tackle and sack a lot of those, dudes," said Brendan Balko, who was there with his friend.
"I can't wait to meet Ndamukong Suh," said Logan Foster sitting by his Dad.
After patiently awaiting for Suh to finish practice, the wait is finally over for the kids. "Did you guys all enjoy practice?" Suh asked to a crowd of excited kids while delivering high-fives to each one.
Suh tells us that he is so excited to see all of the kiddos wearing No. 90 on this Tuesday, which has obviously turned into Suhsday.
"It's always fun," Suh, a native of Portland, Ore., told 7 Action Sports. "They never forget things. It's exciting to see their smiles and their enjoyment. Definitely enjoyed it and look forward to seeing the kids again."
You can bet many of these youngsters will be rooting on No. 90 on game day this season.
In fact, one fan has a little piece of advice for Suh this season:
"Get a lot of tackles. No more fights. Don't get kicked out [of any football games]," said Justin Bush. "We need you, and playoffs here we come."
While fans would love to see the Lions return to the playoffs, these kids are relishing the big day with their favorite defensive tackle.
