Virginia Tech Hokies defensive back Antone Exum received a $470 Best Buy gift card as part of his Russell Athletic Bowl swag. The NCAA allows players participating in college football games to accept sponsorships up to $550 in value. For a college athlete, the gift card could help them add some quality entertainment to their dorm rooms, but for one player, he used it as an opportunity to perform a good deal.
Exum embraced the holiday spirit and took three random kids he met on a shopping spree with his gift card. Here is the image Exum shared following his good deed:

It’s great seeing these kinds of stories, especially with the negativity that has been circulating in the news far too often. Hats off to Exum for giving these three kids an unbelievable Christmas.
