Micah Parsons Sends Fans Gas Money Through Social Media

Former Penn State football linebacker Micah Parsons is showing that he’s not just a star on the gridiron. The Dallas Cowboy is going above and beyond to help several fans amid the record-high gas prices the United States is currently experiencing.

The average price of gas in the U.S. is currently $4.99 a gallon, according to AAA. Parsons took to Twitter Friday to, just like the rest of us, complain about the price of gas. The star linebacker spent $116.46 to fill up his tank, to which one fan responded, “Imagine not being rich having to deal with this.”

Naturally, Parsons agreed and told the folks on Twitter to start sending their Cash App usernames his way so he could lend a hand to those who need it.

Just 27 minutes later, Parsons tweeted a screenshot of his Cash App transaction history, which showed that he sent $25 to at least 18 people. It appears Parsons isn’t done, either, as he told his followers to be patient and that “they coming.”

This isn’t the first time Parsons has used his own money to help other people. Last summer, before he even appeared in a game for the Cowboys, he fulfilled a lifelong promise to his mother and bought her a brand-new home.
