For better or for worse, professional athletes are role models for kids around the world, and one Atlanta Falcons player showed a family that it can definitely be for the better.

Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu was recently on a flight sitting in front of a family that gave him a hand-written note as they were exiting the plane.

Sanu tweeted a picture of that note.

In it, the parents thanked him for being a role model for their 10-year-old son who sat behind him, watched him study plays, make healthy food decisions and be polite to everyone around him.

Sanu said the sweet letter definitely put a smile on his face.
