Kenny Moore has had a good past few days. He was recently rewarded with a large extension that pays him $30 million for his stellar on the field play for the Colts. But he also got some praise that was more than just about football, it was about life.
Moore posted a story on Twitter that was written about him concerning a young boy. The boy had been depressed and contemplating suicide until finding a small dog in the street who needed his help. That dog gave the boy a purpose, and he started taking care of it.
This was while the boy lived in Costa Rica. Then he and his dad moved to Indianapolis, where they have relatives. One day, the dog tragically got hit in the street by a car and the driver didn’t stop. The dog was whimpering as it was dying in the street. Then Moore showed up.
Moore got out of the car and comforted the boy and took the dog to a veterinarian and a surgeon to help save the dog’s life. In return, the boy’s father credited Moore with saving the boy’s life. Moore was incredibly grateful to receive such kind words, even saying he shed a few tears reading the story.
It’s good to have good football players within your organization. But it’s even better to have quality human beings. Moore is very clearly both, and the Colts were smart to extend him.
