Welcome to the Evolving Man Project’s ‘Evolved “Young” Men of the Week’ profile. Today we will highlight historical and contemporary figures who embodied what it means to be an evolved man, famous and non-famous alike. The world needs to know their stories and deeds. This week’s honor goes to the Rome High School Football Team.
The Rome High School students are Cesar Parker, Treyvon Adams, Antwion Carey, Messiah Daniels, Tyson Brown, and Alto Moore. The students were on their way to school on a regular Friday morning when they saw the crash in front of their school.
The car was totaled and badly bent out of shape. Without thinking, the teens managed to pry the passenger door open but realized only afterward that it was the other door that had to be removed for her to be reached.
“We used all our muscles,” Adams said. “We’re pretty big people; we’re strong. We play football, so we lift weights a lot, but (the door) was just extremely bent and broke.”
It all happened in about a minute. But when it was over, the teens freed the woman from the vehicle and carried her on their way back to class after checking on the other car’s driver in the collision.
The Georgia high school football players and friends are hailed as heroes for jumping into action and saving a woman from a potentially fiery car crash.
Here is student and football player Treyvon Adams, in his own words:
“It was right in front of me. I turned off the car, jumped out, and said, “Hey, look, let’s go help her,’” “The woman was leaning over into the passenger seat, begging for help. She had blood on her face and was screaming.”
The young men’s quick thinking and bold actions saved lives that day. We at the Evolving Man Project wish continued success and hope for a bright future for all of the young men of the Rome High School Football Team. Today we honor the Rome High School Football Team as our Evolved “Young” Men of the Week.
