Skittles-loving running back Marshawn Lynch, who plays for the Seattle Seahawks, made headlines when he surprised a McDonald’s employee in Dallas, Texas, with $500. The employee, 17-year-old Terrance Downs, complimented Lynch on his navy blue Buscemis. Lynch surprised the young fast food employee by giving him $500 for his own pair of Buscemi sneakers.

Downs dreams of opening up a clothing shop one day, and he’s working at McDonald’s to earn money to finance his goals. A spokesperson for McDonald’s says Downs has been extra motivated to achieve his future career goals since receiving the generous gift from Lynch.
