Default VA Tech CB Uses Bowl Game Gift Card To Buy 3 Random Kids Presents

Virginia Tech CB Uses Russell Athletic Bowl Game Best Buy Gift Card To Buy 3 Random Kids Christmas Presents


Hampton Roads – Antone Exum already had some headphones picked out for himself and a few for his friends on Christmas Eve. The Virginia Tech cornerback was thinking about some speakers, maybe a few DVDs to finish off the $470 gift card to Best Buy that all the Hokies got as part of the Russell Athletic Bowl swag. “It was really all wants,” he said before practice Tuesday. “It wasn’t anything that I needed or anything, so I just put it back and tried to help some kids out.”

Exum put his things back on the shelves and sought out a few kids he saw earlier in the store. They were playing a demo version of the PlayStation 3 when Exum offered to take them on a shopping spree. “They asked me like three times, ‘So … we can get anything we want? We can just buy anything we want?’” Exum said. “They kept asking me. I was like, ‘Yeah, yeah. I’ve got this money and I want you to go shopping and get what you want.’” Eventually convinced that the gesture was on the level, the three kids, two brothers and a cousin visiting Florida from the Bahamas, picked out what they wanted for Christmas.

Originally, Exum thought it was only two boys. But a third, the youngest of the group, was with his mother and quickly joined the spree. Their haul — a PlayStation 3, some controllers, some video games and a Blackberry — totaled over $500, which was a little more than what Exum had on his card. Teammates Tariq Edwards and Marcus Davis covered the difference.

“It just came down to at the end of the day, I was blessed to have a lot of fortunate Christmases when I was a kid,” Exum said. “So I hope that every kid deserves to have those perfect Christmases. “So when I had the chance, I wanted to give those kids the chance to shop in my cart and get anything they wanted and hopefully it’s a Christmas that they won’t forget. And I know that it was a Christmas that I won’t forget because I won’t forget those smiles and the excitement on their faces when I told them they could get whatever they wanted in the store.”

Cool move on his part!

That is a great act of selflessness! Kudos to this guy. There aren't many people I know regardless of age that would have it in them to do this especially on a whim. What a great story!

I smell a recruiting violation coming on. That kid on the right will be the RT at VT in about 6 years.

I'm totally kidding this is a really awesome story.

Very cool. But over $500 is a helluva Christmas for 3 kids. Bet the parents are stoked that they don't have to get the kids anything this year.

So funny how you are around talking trash for months before the South Carolina Clemson football game then you suddenly disappear and don't say one single word about the game. Then you decide to show back up a few weeks letter in the basketball game thread and now this thread.

How bout that Tiger football team that was going to kick SC's ass this year??? Yeah, the one that was "different" than the one from the previous three years??

ACC baby!!!
