Andy Reid was back at Eagles training camp this morning at Lehigh University and addressed the media for the first time since the passing of his oldest son Garrett on Sunday. Andy was gracious in answering all of the different questions posed to him and was incredibly thankful for the outpouring of love and support shown to him and his family during these trying times. He repeatedly said how humbled he was to see such a tremendous outpouring.
His opening statement can be viewed above.
It was emotional to watch.
The fans and the media don’t always see eye to eye with Andy, but it’s comforting to know how quickly the football differences can be put aside when it really matters.
Here’s more from later in the presser, talking about dealing with the ups and downs of life:
