Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs, who led the 2021 season with 11 interceptions, has become quite the star this season, but so has his son Aaiden.
When the Cowboys were featured in the 2021 season of “Hard Knocks” on HBO in August, Aaiden went viral for some of his cutest and funniest moments interacting with his dad and other Cowboys players. His favorite Cowboys player surprisingly isn’t his dad — it’s quarterback Dak Prescott, even though Aaiden famously mistook Prescott as Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Since Aaiden’s fame took off, the NFL featured him in short videos both alone and with his dad. As long as Aaiden content continues to be posted, fans’ adoration for the young Diggs boy grows. Here’s what you need to know about Aaiden Diggs.
