Here’s your heartwarming story of the day, and it comes courtesy of a former fan favorite on the Georgia Bulldogs football team.
Keith Marshall, now in his third NFL season with the Washington Redskins, and his teammate Rob Kelley, were in a GameStop store when they overheard a young boy talking about wanting an Xbox for his birthday but his parents being unable to afford one.
So Marshall and Kelley decided to do something about it. The full story is below, from Facebook user Joey Snapp, as tweeted by Washington on Thursday.

What a great gesture from Marshall and Kelley to make a boy’s birthday one he will never forget.
Marshall’s alma mater gave him some love on Twitter as well.
