Colts Rookie of the Year Darius Leonard stops and changes a strangers tire (Video)

Former South Carolina State linebacker Darius Leonard is a beast on the field, and a gentle giant off the field. He stopped today to change a tire for a young lady whose tire was flat.

The Indianapolis Colts have a possessed man in rookie linebacker Darius Leonard. On the field, he plays like a mad man, but off the field, he is one of the kindest and amazing people. Today on Easter, he was driving by a young lady who had a flat tire and he changed her tire for her.

Leonard is a small school player and we love and support our HBCU players, because this is awesome. It is not everyday you hear about a player stopping on the side of the road to help someone. This is old school right here, and I love every minute of it.

He finished his rookie season in 2018 with 163 combined tackles (111 solo), eight pass deflections, seven sacks, and one interception in 15 games and 15 starts.[ Leonard recorded the most tackles among all players as a rookie in 2018. He received an overall grade of 80.3 from Pro Football Focus, which ranked ninth among all linebackers in 2018.
