There are a lot of people out there who can't stand Richard Sherman. But 10-year-old Seahawks fan Nate Semmier really looks up to him. So much so that, recently, Nate's mom agreed to let the boy—who lost his left leg when he was just two weeks old—get a prosthetic leg with Sherman's picture on it.

"We decided that we wanted to design something that was cool enough for him to wear," Mary Semmier told KING-TV in Seattle. "That's where we got the idea for the Richard Sherman leg."

Sherman was impressed with the leg, too. He agreed to meet with Nate recently and he had a great reaction to seeing the leg for the first time.

"You might be a bigger fan of me than I am," he told the boy.

It obviously sucks that the kid needs to have the prosthetic leg in the first place. But if you're going to have one, you might as well have one with your favorite NFL player on it, right?
