A favorite son of Compton, Calif. stepped when a neighborhood youth football team needed help.
Sherman tweeted that the Tarheels' team-required 3.1 GPA pushed him to help out.
The donations shocked players, coaches, and parents, according to NBC 4 Los Angeles' Kim Baldonado. Now, the team of 20 kindergarteners and first graders can afford travel, lodging, food, and other related costs.
Team parent Phenice Hurtado told FOX 11 Los Angeles' Leah Uko that the trip is "the chance of a lifetime."
"Many of them have never been on a plane, nevertheless traveled across the country," Hurtado said. "And so exposing at such a young age travel and other states and that kind of national platform creates dreams for them."
Sherman realized his football dreams -- and was more than happy to help some hometown kids realize theirs.
