PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Eddie loves playing basketball.

He says he likes any kind of competition, including, "One-on-one, horse, around the world, knock-out, pig."

But, for this 10-year-old, when it comes to his future, he wants to be a professional football player. His favorite part of the game is the touchdown celebration.

He already has his sorted out.

"It's called the 'hocus pocus,'" he says. "It's a weird dance, but I got that when I was watching football."

When he's with his friends, he likes to play games like Connect Four. He tells KYW's Tim McLaughlin he and his friends even have tournaments.

He says he beat 10 people at Connect Four. 

Asked about his strategy, he said, "I say, 'Look — what's that?' Like, when they try to block it, I go 'What's that?' and then they forget where it's at and then I win."

Eddie is looking for a forever family, and he says he just wants someone who will spend time with him.
