The "My Wish" series returned to ESPN this week for its seventh season, and the newest episode captured 10-year-old Donovan Troy, who suffers from sickle cell anemia, hitting the recording studio with his favorite NFL player, Philadelphia Eagle DeSean Jackson.
After the Eagles practice, DeSean completely surprised Donovan with an invitation to go to a recording studio in downtown Philadelphia to write and record a rap song. Music producer/audio engineer Mike Jerz played a few different beats he created and Donovan selected his favorite. DeSean wrote lyrics that were Eagles-themed and pretty soon Donovan donned some headphones and hopped in the booth with DeSean to start rapping. DeSean called Donovan "Jay-Z in the booth" at one point. ... Donovan was thrilled to play catch with Eagles' quarterback Michael Vick. He didn't drop one pass, which included a high-arcing, 25-yard strike. Donovan impressed Vick with his best DeSean touchdown dance after that catch.
