14-year-old named 'honorary Saint' on national morning show

He may be small, but Jarrius Robertson's personality is larger than life. 

The 14-year-old, self-proclaimed hype man for the New Orleans Saints made his national TV debut this morning with an appearance on Good Morning America with Robin Roberts.

The young Saints fan was surprised with a 'contract' from Head Coach Sean Payton, Quarterback Drew Brees and Cam Jordan to become an "honorary Saint" and also join the team in Kansas City. 

Jarrius quickly took the pen and signed the contract saying, "You don't have to tell me twice!"

 

Jarrius suffers from a chronic liver condition called biliary atresia. The condition has already required him to have one liver transplant when he was just a year old. 

He was also asked to be the social media coordinator for the Saints, with his first duty to interview Robin Roberts. When asked if Roberts missed New Orleans, she said she missed her family and sister Sally-Ann, a morning show anchor at WWL-TV.
