It all happened November 1st, on the Sunday that the Seahawks defeated the Cowboys 13-12. After the game, Marshawn Lynch went into a Dallas McDonald’s and changed someone’s life just being himself.
It was this visit to McDonalds where he helped out one of the fast-food employees, a 17-year old Terrance Downs when he had a conversation with Downs.
Downs told TMZ that he told Lynch, “I told him I liked his shoes— navy blue Buscemis — and how I wanted to buy a pair and we started talking.”
According to the teen, Lynch asked him what he wanted to do as a profession when he got older and Downs told him, fashion and that one day he wanted to own a boutique of his own.
Downs said, “If you’re serious about getting those shoes, here’s some money to help you get ’em. My job is to continue to see you grow” and that’s when he was handed $500 by Lynch.
Downs said that he did go out and buy himself a pair of Buscemis and that encounter with Lynch has motivated him to become someone and said that with that he hope that “I can do the same thing for someone else one day.”
