Sometimes, it's tough to pick a team to root for. So why not just ask the teams?

That's exactly what 12-year-old Cade Pope did.

The sixth-grader from Oklahoma wrote a letter to every owner of every NFL team asking who he should support. Of the 32 teams, only one responded.

Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson sent Cade a handwritten letter that stated, "Cade, we would be honored if our Carolina Panthers became your team. We would make you proud by the classy way we represent you."

The letter also came with a replica Panthers helmet signed by Pro Bowl linebacker Luke Kuechly.

"If this is the only team that responds to me, I'm a Carolina Panthers fan," said Pope.
