Good deeds and good people do still exist, and this story is proof!
LA Rams wide receiver, Brandin Cooks wanted to repay their team custodian for all he does and make sure he was apart of the big day. Cook has reportedly arranged for Alfonso Garcia and his son Josh to go to Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta—all expenses paid.
USA Today reported that Cooks handed Garcia two tickets to the big game, and let him know that he had also taken care of their flights and hotel. just before the team boarded their flight to ATL last week. The other amazing part of this story is that Cooks never blasted this good deed to the public, like many people do now-a-days.

It was actually his teammate Robert Woods, who gave him away while simultaneously talking about what Cooks means to his Ram family on AND off the field. “I walked by and just happened to see that encounter. That’s the type of teammate he is, and a leader,” Woods said of the receiver. Once people found out Cooks turned all the attention to Garcia, “Oh, man, Alfonso, the guy is special, man. 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.”
AWWWW *wipes tears dramatically, then pretends to blow nose*, Cooks will be playing his former team the Patriots this Sunday, at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium. No matter the outcome of the game, its definitely a win for the beloved custodian and his lucky son.
