Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch Gives McDonald’s Worker $500 For Shoes

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch isn’t a man of many words – especially when it comes to giving interviews to the media.

The 29-year-old NFL star has often preferred to let his actions do the talking for him, and has turned himself into one of the best players in his position in recent years.

But it seems his frosty relationship with the press doesn’t actually represent the real Marshawn Lynch, according to a recent report from TMZ.

Lynch reportedly walked into a McDonalds on November 1, after the Seahawks defeated the Cowboys, and struck up a conversation with Terrance Downs, a 17-year-old employee who was mopping the floor.

“I told him I liked his shoes — navy blue Buscemis — and how I wanted to buy a pair and we all started talking,” said Downs.

Lynch asked the youngster about his education and what he wanted to do with his life. Downs revealed that he liked fashion and hoped to own his own store one day.

It was then that the Seahawks running back gave Downs $500, saying: “If you’re serious about getting those shoes, here’s some money to help you get them. My job is to continue to see you grow.”

A representative for the owner of the McDonald’s confirmed the story to TMZ, saying, “Marshawn left a huge positive impact on Terrance.”

Downs told TMZ he went out and bought the shoes and hopes that “I can do the same thing for someone else one day.”
