Wallace Gilberry, a defensive end for the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals, is known for making tackles on the field, but he recently tackled a problem off the field by helping a local family in a big way.
Gilberry was shopping Monday evening at a Target outside of Cincinnati in nearby Newport, Kentucky. While walking the aisles in the store, Gilberry noticed a mother and a father shopping with their kids. With the holidays approaching, Gilberry decided to do a very generous thing.
He purchased a Playstation 4 and several video games for the family he'd just met.
A nearby shopper noticed the kind act and snapped a photo of the encounter.
He posted the photo to Instagram and it has gone viral.
It turns out that this wasn’t the first random act of kindness from Gilberry.
A Reddit thread of the photo revealed other times when Gilberry helped strangers, including buying everyone a shot of Sake at a sushi restaurant and buying cheeseburgers for the entire athletic training staff in Kansas City.
What a standup guy!
