Brandin Cooks made sure someone important to him, as well as the Rams, made it to the Super Bowl.
The Los Angeles receiver handed two tickets to team custodian Alfonso Garcia for him and his son to attend the game after practice last week, USA Today reported.
Cooks then made sure the team’s travel coordinators helped Garcia with plane tickets to and accomodations in Atlanta.
The act of kindness wasn’t revealed until wideout Robert Woods told reporters about what Cooks did, lauding him for thinking of others.
“I walked by and just happened to see that encounter,” Woods said. “That’s the type of teammate he is, and a leader.”
Cooks was asked about his relationship with Garcia, to which he said Garcia deserved the trip for the hard work he does.
“Oh, man, Alfonso — the guy is special, man,” Cooks said. “He keeps our locker room in tip-top shape. He has such a special soul. Someone that I found myself drawn to once I got there, and I see him around the facility all the time.
“I just felt like it would be special for him to see that he is a part of this success as well, and I wanted him to be able to be at the Super Bowl with his son to enjoy that.”
Kickoff for the Super Bowl will be at 6:30 p.m. ET Sunday in Atlanta.
