The Mississippi State Bulldogs may have come up short in their game against mighty Alabama. But it’s what starting quarterback Will Rogers did after the game that’s going viral.

As Rogers was preparing to leave Bryant-Denny Stadium, he was caught by Bulldogs Athletic Director John Cohen helping a Crimson Tide event staff member. Rogers offered his hand to help the woman up the exit ramp.

“Always proud to watch Will exemplify try leadership, even after a tough week such as this,” Cohen said in his tweet.

The Bulldogs played the contest just days after a member of their football team was found dead. Freshman Sam Westmoreland passed away.

The police said that no foul play was suspected in the deal. TMZ reported that he was found on Wednesday deceased at a church.

The football team honored Westmoreland with stickers on their helmet during the game. The authorities are investigating his death.

In the game, Rogers went 30 of 60 for 231 passing yards. The option quarterback struggled in the running game, as he had five carries for -27 yards.

His performance will not be remembered from this game. However, it’s what he did after the contest that touched the hearts of people with his kind gesture to help an elderly woman.
