Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams Gives Up First Class Seat to Marine
Happy Fourth of July!
Fans of the Carolina Panthers are well aware of what running back DeAngelo Williams is capable of on the field, but do they know what he is capable of off of it? If not he certainly showed them with something he did over the holiday weekend.
He gave his first class seat up to a marine also traveling on the plane:
I always give up my seat to military if my seat is better! I truly appreciate our troops #flyingtherightway pic.twitter.com/pptilEg6xi

He posted a picture of his ticket and the marine in question to his Facebook page
with the following message:
“He doesn’t know it yet but he will be sitting in this seat when he boards the plane I always give up my 1st class seat! #isalutethetroops,” Williams writes.
Of course the haters of the world had to have their say online, but Williams took it all in stride.
“I always do that and for those of you that are saying I shouldn’t have posted keep calm and enjoy my page and happy 4th of July (it’s called being patriotic for life),” Williams wrote.
Well done Mr. Williams. Well done indeed.
