Derek Carr, one of the best young QBs in the NFL, recently helped a stranded motorist. The gentleman had run out of gas, so the Oakland Raiders QB gave him a ride to the gas station.
Then, Carr – who is heading into the final year of his rookie contract, where he makes $1.34 million a year – offered to pray for the man, and said he’d like to be a pastor after he’s done playing football.
Derek Carr is basically Tim Tebow, but with a better arm, right?
So I ask him what his favorite team is and he replies, “Well I’m a little biased cause I play for the Raiders…”
I pause for a second and say no shit, what’s your name…
At this point I was a little speechless, and couldn’t believe the situation I was in, let alone someone like him was that generous.
But it doesn’t stop there…
We pulled up to my car, I shook his hand, exchanged contact info and thanked him for his help.
He paused and asked me, “is there anything you’d like to pray for before I go?’
I grew up catholic and couldn’t pass at the opportunity, so I mentioned 3 things.
He replied “Can I pray for you?”
He placed his right hand on my left shoulder and we said a prayer together…
Derek Carr, what a guy.
