Virginia Tech cornerback Antone Exum showed us what the Christmas spirit is all about. The junior second-team All-ACC cornerback is preparing for his team’s Russell Athletic Bowl game against Rutgers on Friday. His team took a trip to a local Best Buy where each player was given $420 to spend in the store. Instead of buying gifts for himself, Exum decided to spend the money on three strange kids. “Spent my $470 Dollar Best Buy Gift Card From The Bowl Game on These Three Kids I Met from Bahamas I Met In The Store!! Made Their Christmas!!” Exum wrote on his Instagram account. What a fantastic gesture by Exum. Can you believe he is only 21 years old and putting the happiness of others ahead of himself? Exum has already graduated from Virginia Tech. It’s safe to say the finance major sure knows how to put his money to good use. Photo credit: Antone Exum/Instagram H/T Deadspin

  • God, I hope this guy makes it to the NFL. We need more positive black male role models. The guy just looks like a winner in that picture, and what can you say about what he did. Class act.

    I give you a virtual salute young man. Well done!
  • The NFl is 70percent black are you telling me that all the players are bad lol , did you read what CJ Johnson did for the kids at sandy Hook , and their are plenty of black athlete that do lots in their community but dont seek out the news to report it , they keep it to themselves , wow what a dumb comment
  • Hey idiot. Know what was in the top ten list of requested gifts from Santa this year? A DAD, you PoS idiot. You can read whatever the hell you want into my comment (and you DID since I said nothing you claim, you idiot), but we can't have ENOUGH good male role models. That too hard to grasp for a mental midget such as yourself?
