Virginia Tech junior cornerback Antone Exum played the role of Santa Claus on Monday.
Exum's Hokies are all set to compete in Friday's Russell Athletic Bowl against Rutgers and part of the player experience includes receiving a Best Buy gift card. The NCAA allows bowl participants to accept gifts up to $550 in value, and Exum chose to generously spend the $470 given to him on three kids instead.
Exum posted the above photo along with the following tweet on Twitter with which further details the act of kindness:
What a nice gesture by the college student, who could have just as easily bought himself a new laptop, new game system, and/or a handful of video games rather than spend his allotment on someone else.
Exum has recorded 46 total tackles and 4 interceptions this season for the 6-6 Hokies.
