So when Phillips had an opportunity to collaborate with Hippy Feet, who financially supported Harrison’s Playmakers, on his own clothing line, he happily embraced the new endeavor.

Phillips this week spent time with Jenna, Jason and Aidan, all of whom have intellectually or developmental differences and are part of Best Buddies, a nationwide nonprofit near and dear to Phillips’ heart.

When the young people had a chance to join photoshoots with Phillips Jenna and Aidan helped the lineman model a few of his new Hippy Feet items.

“Give me your best pose,” Phillips encouraged Aidan, who didn’t shy away from a big-time flex.

Phillips lifted Jenna onto his shoulder, the two of them wearing matching “Horrible Harry” hoodies.

The trio then took a seated position, laughing heartily as they showed off three different designs of Horrible Harry socks.

“C’mon, bud! I’m trying to smile and you keep making me laugh,” Jenna ribbed Phillips.

Eric Perkins, Jenna’s dad and former KARE 11 sportscaster, smiled as he took in the whole interaction.

“Jenna has fun with just about anything she does, but the access he granted her made an indelible impact,” Perkins said. “She is still talking about it, and she honestly thinks of him as her buddy now.”

Perkins explained that Jenna got involved with Best Buddies during the COVID-19 pandemic when, like people all around the country and world, she struggled with a lack of connection.

“Jenna discovered Best Buddies through some of her friends at Special Olympics,” Perkins explained. “During the pandemic, she was feeling isolated like so many others, and Best Buddies stepped up with a lot of fun, interactive, online meetings that she became a part of. Since then, she’s been active in their programs, galas and events.”

Since Phillips signed with the Vikings last spring as a free agent, Perkins has been impressed by his consistent commitment to not only Best Buddies but the special needs community as a whole.
