College Footballers Rewarded For Honesty Caught On Camera

College Footballers Rewarded For Honesty Caught On CameraFour football players from William Paterson University went shopping at a general store in Wayne, N.J., on Sunday afternoon. After spending several minutes trying to locate the store clerk, two of the players who needed sunglasses and batteries were captured on store security cameras leaving money at the register.

‘Who does that?’

Buddy’s Small Lots store manager, Marci Lederman, was taken by their honesty.

“They picked up a few items, and they left cash on the counter and waved to the cameras,” Lederman told Yahoo News. “Who does that?”

Thomas James, Kell’E Gallimore, Jelani Bruce and Anthony Biondi do that. As it turns out, the players had unknowingly entered a closed store. Lederman said a lock on the front door had malfunctioned and a half-lit store made it look like Buddy’s was open. Police phoned her to say an alarm had been tripped, but she found nothing amiss.


‘Good example’

Lederman was so impressed that she called a local TV station to share the surveillance video, which helped her identify the four young men. On Tuesday, she rewarded each of them with $50 shopping sprees.

“For me it’s the total product,” Coach Flora said. “I’m looking for guys that will come in, be here for four years, learn, develop, graduate, become good alums, give back to the university, give back to the program and along the way hopefully have some fun and set a good example.”

How many people you know are capable of that level of honesty? Feel free to share your thoughts regarding this rare good news from the sports world!

Man Jumps In Acid-Filled Vat To Save Colleague

A roofer in New Jersey reportedly jumped into a vat of nitric acid on Monday to save a co-worker who had fallen in.

Martin Davis was working at Swepco Tube LLC, a metal tube manufacturing plant in Clifton, N.J., when he fell 40 feet into the tank of acid and became full submerged, fire officials said. Clifton Fire Chief Vincent Colavitti Jr. told the Record that a fellow roofer, 51-year-old Rob Nuckols, jumped into the vat waist-high to pull Davis, 44, out. Three other workers helped Nuckols pluck Davis from the acid, which is used to clean metal tubing.


Rescue workers “cut Davis out of his clothes and sprayed him with water to limit burns,” Colavitti told the paper. Davis suffered “a broken rib, punctured lung, and burns on his legs and side” and is in critical condition, according to the Associated Press. Nuckols was also treated for burns.

A co-worker who returned to the factory to collect Davis’ things agreed: “It’s not that kind of acid,” the co-worker said, declining to give his name to the paper. “It’s diluted. He’s going to be fine.”
