Notre Dame fans remember Robert Blanton as a standout cornerback early in the Brian Kelly years. Blanton played for the Irish from 2008-2011 where he intercepted eight passes in 50 career games before being drafted by the Minnesota Vikings and playing in the NFL for six seasons.

Blanton’s football playing days are over as he now owns a daycare in the Minneapolis suburbs. It was there this week that Blanton stopped a carjacking from happening as he helped a woman fend off would-be carjackers.

Video of the story and an interview with Blanton can be seen below courtesy of CBS Minneapolis.

Props to Blanton for saving the day.
