Marshawn Lynch is one of the greatest personalities in the NFL. Every one of his interviews is a treat to watch, as is his performance on the field. Now, the five time Pro-Bowler is giving back on his birthday, proving that there are no days off. As the coronavirus pandemic continues in the United States, facemasks have become a necessity to protect Americans from transmitting the disease in public. Lynch has been helping his home city Oakland, Calif., by riding around giving out masks to protect city residents, including during the George Floyd protests. That's the definition of Beast Mode.
Lynch was delivering masks in the way only he would: by riding around the city in a cart with the words "bout that action" on the side. You just have to love him.
"Bout that action" is of course a reference to Lynch's interview with Deion Sanders prior to Super Bowl XLVIII. Lynch kept his word, and helped the Seattle Seahawks to a 43-8 win over the Denver Broncos.
This isn't the first time Lynch has given back to his community. In 2011, he founded the Fam 1st Family Foundation which is dedicated to helping empower and educate underprivileged youth in Lynch's home city of Oakland and across the world.
Seeing an NFL great so dedicated to helping their community is always amazing, but it is even more special during these tough times. Right now, we need people like Lynch more than ever.
