The Nashville Way: Lewan's good deed goes viral

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) - It’s not too often you see the softer side of Tennessee Titans’ all-pro tackle Taylor Lewan, but his good deed has gone viral on social media after he was spotted buying groceries for a family in need.  

Larry Kloess posted a photo to Facebook of Lewan at the Target on Charlotte Avenue with a cart full of essentials, clothing and school supplies for the family.  

Kloess explained he was going into the store when he saw a family holding a sign and “embarrassingly didn’t approach them to see what help they needed.” 

He didn’t need to be embarrassed because help soon arrived thanks to #77.  

Kloess said he was walking the aisles when he saw Lewan filling up the family’s cart but “followed the unofficial Nashville code and said nothing, turning down another aisle and smiling to myself at this generous act.” 

He then happened to get in line at the checkout behind them where he snapped a discreet photo of the family with their good Samaritan.  

“I thought to myself, 'I should have walked up to them and bless them', and felt a tinge of shame, but in the end I was so blessed to witness such a beautiful random act of kindness. Thank you, Taylor. I’m grateful to have seen your giant heart on display. Consider me an even bigger Titans fan after this chance crossing-of-paths. It was a much-needed reminder that life isn’t all about us, but is about the greater impact we have on the world around us.”

So far, Kloess’ post has been shared over 3,000 times.
