Chiefs guard Jeff Allen got stuck in the snow after several inches were jumped on Kansas City. A homeless man named Dave was helping drivers who got stuck on Highway 40 and stopped by Allen's BMW.
"I rolled down my window and I asked them if they needed help. They said, 'Yeah! We're trying to get to the game,'" Dave stayed. He had no clue that Allen was not only trying to get to the game, he was going to be in the game.
Dave, who lives out of his truck, hooked it up to Allen's BMW and towed it out of the snow. "I towed them up a hill," Dave said. "I mean, I was kinda scared because I'm towing a 95 Suburban and they're driving a brand new 2019 BMW."
Dave successfully got the BMW out of the snow, and Allen went on his way to the game. The player wanted to thank Dave, but all he knew was his first name and the type of car he drove. So he took to social media to see if his followers could help find the kind man who helped him that day.
"My car got stuck in the snow before the game & a nice guy named Dave help pull me out without knowing I was a player," Allen wrote. "I want to give him tickets to the AFC championship game for helping but don't have a way to contact him. He drove a 97 or 98 Black Suburban." He urged his followers to retweet the message.
Dave said the reward meant a lot to him – he's a lifelong Chiefs fan, but has never been to Arrowhead Stadium.
