Former Nebraska QB Tommy Armstrong Jr is a hero for saving a family from a burning home
Former Nebraska gunslinger Tommy Armstrong Jr. was not just a great college quarterback, he was a selfless leader who is being called a hero today.
The former Cornhuskers quarterback jumped into action when he noticed a bunch of smoke in his Mother’s neighbors home. The QB told reporters what happened and how he jumped into action with his Mother to save the family.
“I saw a bunch of smoke, so I just started grabbing bricks and throwing it through the window,” Armstrong recalled about the incident. “I realized they were trying to get out of the back right window. So, I crawled in there, grabbed her, picked her up and drug her to the window, and we got her out. At the end of the day, I was just trying to find her. I’ve known her since I was a little kid.”
Both Armstrong Jr. and his Mother are being named heroes for their actions.
Armstrong Jr. set career records back in 2013-16 for the Cornhuskers, and recently took a job as the OC for Lincoln Northstar High School.
