World Champion quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson, recently was sitting on an Alaska Airlines flight, and watched a soldier carrying his bags back to the coach section of the plane.
What he did next shows the absolute class in which Wilson conducts himself off the field.
Via MRC TV:
Russell Wilson is known to be one of classiest acts in the NFL. He’s also one of the most outspoken Christians in the NFL, as well. Well, last week he lived up to both of those reputations.
While on a flight with Alaska Airlines, Wilson spotted a soldier making his way toward the coach section of the plane. Wilson, being the awesome guy that he is, immediately upgraded the homebound warrior to a first-class seat.
The soldier, identified as Kane Bernas, a U.S. Army serviceman, took to social media to express his gratitude:
Russell Wilson was on my flight back to seattle and he brought me up to first class. Mad respect! #clutch
