Recently, Ohio State junior Gee Scott Jr., a tight end for the Buckeyes, was approached by an unhoused man named Eugene while stopped at a red light in Columbus. Instead of merely giving the man $10, Scott surprised him with a $500 gift, a meal, two nights in a hotel, a fresh haircut and more. (Scott is no joke when it comes to cutting hair.)
