NFL Star Rescues And Prays For Stranded Motorist, But The Man Had NO IDEA Who He Was
A remarkable story has emerged about NFL Raiders QB Derek Carr. Reportedly, local music producer Ron Reeser found himself in trouble after his car broke down last week. Then, a kind man pulled over and offered to help. Little did he know that he was a megastar athlete. The two got chatting.
He asked the driver what he did for a living and he said that he played football, adding that he is very religious and wants to become a pastor when he retires. On the return from the gas station, Reeser asked the driver more about football, reports All22.com. He said he was a quarterback; I thought he was a college quarterback,” Reeser said on Wednesday. “I asked him what string he was. He said ‘first string.’ I asked him his favorite team. He said, ‘I may be biased, but the Raiders because I play for them.’ I looked at him and said, ‘Wait’ … and I asked him his name. He said ‘Derek Carr.’
“He couldn’t have been more down to earth. He was wearing a hat and basketball shorts. I had no idea. He was just driving by and helped. It really made me feel good that there are good people still out there doing nice things for people.”
The two talked some more and Carr asked Reeser if there was anything he could pray for. Reeser responded with three things. So Carr put a hand on his shoulder and prayed there and then. “It was such an empowering moment,” Reeser said. “It’s just not something I expected to happen after running out of gas. Some of the people I’ve told about it said maybe it was a sign to help me restore my faith in people doing the right thing.”
