NFL player Jermaine Gresham is going viral after helping out a young woman at an airport.

Delilah Cassidy tweeted the whole story.

“WOW okay so the most amazing thing just happened to me and I can’t help but share it with the world”

She explained she was trying to fly home to Arizona when American Airlines told her she needed to pay an extra $50 because her carry-on bag was too big.

Her credit card wasn’t working and Delilah was afraid she would miss her flight until “this man walks up and says, ‘How much is it?’ They tell him $50 and he says, ‘I got it.'”

Cassidy added, “This man was an angel. I stop him as he’s sitting in first class and try to give him my money but he just shook me off and told me to pay it forward.”

Little did she know that the unknown angel was a celebrity.

After their flight landed, she tweeted an update: “It was Jermaine Gresham.”

Cassidy had even written about Gresham when she was studying sports journalism a few years ago, but hadn’t recognized him until later.

“He said, ‘If it was me, I would want someone to have done that for me,” Cassidy told CBS-5.
