A.J. McCarron just does all of the right things. He doesn’t get in trouble off the field, he wins championships, and he dates a supermodel too — doesn’t sound like a bad life to me. Today, he’s again make a really nice move, this time by honoring a 17-year-old girl who was in a car crash this past week.
Olivia Mills passed away this morning — she had been in a medically-induced coma following a car accident on her way home from church last Sunday in Northport, Alabama. Mills is very well-respected in her community, and since the accident, over 40,000 people have shown support for Olivia on a “Prayers For Olivia Mills” Facebook page.
Word of her story reached Alabama’s McCarron, and he is wearing purple today in her honor:
