When you're a 6' 4", 305 pound guard in the NFL, you probably wouldn't expect a guy like Dave Cochran to be the one to bail you out of a game day jam.
Jeff Allen, who plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, was the man in the jam. He got stuck in the snow just before Saturday’s game against the Colts.
That’s when Dave happened along and spotted a problem deeper than the snow. “It said Texas plates,” Dave said. “That's why I said he wasn't used to this weather. He ain't used to this coldness."
Good Samaritan, Dave, was making a day of it at the time. “I was driving down 40 highway and I seen a couple cars stuck. I pulled one guy up out of there right before that, then I see this other car just stuck on the side of the road so I told my old lady, I was like, we gotta help him."
As thousands headed to Arrowhead Stadium, Allen was getting nowhere until a homeless stranger stepped up.
“After I got done helping him he told me he was a Chiefs player. I didn't look at him as no Chiefs player. I just looked at him as a normal person and would hope that he would do the same for me as if I did for him."
Dave vanished in his truck that doubles as his home and Allen took to Twitter to try to find him. It worked.
Dave said, “That's a natural habit for me is to help people. I don't expect nothing in return," but Allen is providing him with tickets to the AFC championship game Sunday.
"It's like a dream come true,” Dave said.
