Aidan Hutchinson and Ryder Finkel at Mott Children's Hospital

Finkel Force | I Love You More

Week 11 was extra special. DET vs CHI. Aidan dedicated the game to 7-year-old Ryder Finkel after meeting him in the hospital. What a fascinating, amazing kid: he told us he’s obsessed with retro video games and the sitcom, Seinfeld.

Ryder’s electric personality matched the energy at the end of the game perfectly… it was poetic.

A note from the family:

Ryder was diagnosed with DIPG brain cancer this year on October 23. He loves basketball and football. He is a ray of positivity and love. He has always woken up everyday so happy to be alive—before diagnosis and after. Every time anyone tells Ryder “I love you” he has always responded “I love you more.”

Please pray for Ryder & consider donating to the family’s GoFundMe, link in bio. And don’t forget to always tell the people in your life that you love them more💙
