Mississippi State commitment comes to the rescue

We all get tired of hearing about the things football players do wrong off the field.

Occasionally, they do things right, even bordering on the heroic.

Did you hear the story about Mississippi State commitment Kaleb Eulls, who plays for Yazoo County High in Mississippi?

He wrestled a semi-automatic handgun from a student on a school bus Tuesday morning after she pulled the gun out of a bag and began shouting and threatening other students.

Eulls, a 255-pound defensive end, first told the girl to put the gun down and then tackled her to the ground and took the gun away. His three younger sisters were also on the bus.

How does a hero celebrate his courageous actions later that day?

He goes to football practice.
