“He’s A Millionaire Now. So It’s All Good.”

April 12th, 2015

GholstonlockerJoe had an uncle who always said, “If you give charity, it will find its way back to you somehow.”

A feel good story circling the Internet about Bucs defensive end William Gholston has that kind of ring to it.

Per Complex.com, Gholston was a broke teenager who ran out of gas on the highway in Michigan. He hiked to a service station and was gifted some gas by the guy running the store. Yesterday, Gholston went back to even the score.

In the video below, the station worker documents his brushes with Gholston and is hesitant about taking his reward.

    Nice job Gholston. Good for you in remembering someone who helped you in your time of need in the past and paying them back with plenty of interest.

    The starting DE job is as wide open as it can possibly be. Hope you are able to make the big jump in your 3rd year – put it all together and seize that job with authority. How cool would that be? Lovie says you have all the physical tools. This is your chance to fulfill your dream and be a star NFL player. Work harder than you ever have in this offseason and it just might happen. Good Luck.

    My mother is living proof of this Joe. She has to be the luckiest person on the planet. It’s almost like she goes out of her way to do things for people just so that she can keep being so lucky.

    She has to be lucky in one aspect anyways. She gave birth to me, now that’s lucky as all hell! Ha!

    Gholston developing his obvious potential is what this Bucs fan is looking forward to see happen. William the conqueror!

    Good move, but why all the coverage? It loses sincerity when you draw attention to it.

    Jaques Bell RB Detroit Lions was a security guard for the lions before making the team. I thought to myself – only in America.

    lol DB he probably shoulda changed his last name to Ball instead of Bell and went into porn. Joique Ball is an awesome porn name

    William Gholston is a pure class act and the BUCS are fortunate to have him on the roster.
