Marshawn Lynch Keeps Doing Bro Stuff After What He Did For The Mom Of A High School Player Killed In Shooting
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch might be on the shelf with an injury right now, but he’s still making moves that should earn him a spot in the Bro Hall of Fame—if there is such a thing.
After we told you about Beast Mode giving a McDonald’s worker $500 last month, Lynch is back to doing good deeds again, reaching out to the mom of a high school football player who was recently killed in a shooting, giving her some support during the difficult time.
Hailing from Oakland and doing a ton of work through his Fam 1st Family Foundation in and around the Bay Area, Sporting News‘ Ron Clements detailed a story about how Marshawn went out of his way to comfort the mother of Jaulon “JJ” Clavo—a senior at Grant Union High School in Sacramento who was killed hours before his team was set to play in a state playoff game on Nov. 13.
Lynch’s former teammate at Cal, Quan Thompson—an alumnus of Grant High—detailed the situation with a Facebook post:
For some athletes, the whole fortune and fame thing might cloud the real world, but that’s not Marshawn Lynch, who has shown that he’ll return a person’s wallet to their house or lend some support if and when he can. Dude is definitely all ’bout that action, boss, and it stretches to beyond just the gridiron.
