Colts LB Darius Leonard pulled over to help a woman change her tire on Easter

Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard is building up some good karma before his sophomore season. When 23-year-old Leonard saw someone in need on Easter Sunday, he decided to give them a helping hand.

Leonard reportedly stopped and helped a woman change her tire. The woman even grabbed video of Leonard helping her out.

That appears to be Leonard changing the woman’s tire. You can see him working on the tire while the woman films him. In her post, the woman called Leonard an “outstanding player on and off the field.”

This isn’t the first time Leonard has done something nice for another person. In February, Leonard surprised his mother with a new car. Her reaction was excellent.

On the field, Leonard has also lived up to that “outstanding” tag. He led the league in tackles as a rookie, and was named to the All-Pro team. He also won the 2018 Rookie of the Year award.

Based on that, Leonard doesn’t need good karma to keep performing like a star during his sophomore season. Still, there’s no downside to doing kind things for people away from the football field.

At the very least, it makes Leonard pretty easy to root for when he’s on the field.
