Mother of Broncos linebacker Todd Davis shares heartwarming story about her son

Broncos linebacker Todd Davis, pictured above with his family, is one of the good guys in the sport world. His mother explains why.

This is the time of year when NFL teams hope they don't hear about one of their players in the news.

During the NFL's short offseason, players always seem to find ways to get in trouble. Troubled players often overshadow the 'good guys' in football — but they're out there.

Denver linebacker Todd Davis is, according to his mother, one of the good guys.

"He is just a great young man. He really cares about everyone," Karen Davis recently told MHR during a phone interview about Todd's upcoming youth football camp.

She recalled a time when she was at Walmart with her son during a rainstorm.

"There was a woman there with her baby and I was talking with her, and Todd went and got the car, of course, because as a mom I didn't want to get my hair messed up.

"And as he went to get the car, I was talking to this lady who had her baby in a stroller, and they were under a sign so they wouldn't get wet. And I said, 'Honey, do you have a way to get home?' And she said, 'No, we're just waiting for the rain to slow down.'"

Karen could tell that the rain was not going to stop anytime soon. So when Todd returned with the car, she told him the lady did not have a way home.

"And he said, 'Oh, my goodness, get in the car!' and he immediately got out, got her, got the baby and stroller in the car, and we took them home."

"Strangers that we've never seen since or before, but that's the kind of thing that I know shows his character. It reveals the kind of person he is. He truly cares about people and truly wants to make a difference in people's lives."

It's not a breaking news story, but it's a story worth sharing.

"I'm super proud of him."
