OAKLAND, Calif. - Reeser grew up a San Francisco 49ers fan, but said, "You might see me on the sidelines at a Raiders game.” But despite Carr’s impressive resume and accolades, it was his faith in God that impressed Reeser the most. He says Carr told him he hopes to be a pastor one day after he retires from football.
Reeser continued, “He said, ‘You know before you go, is there anything you want to pray for?’ Me being Catholic and raised that way, I said 'Sure, why not?' He put his right hand on my left shoulder. We said a prayer together. At that point, it was a little mind-blowing because I didn't expect that at all."
It’s not the only good samaritan act Carr has been tied to this year. According to Fox Sports, Oakland Police credited him with helping find a missing child in January.
It seems like we ALL have a good teammate out there with Derek. Watch the video to see how this simple act of kindness meant so much.
