After displaying a big heart by standing up for the six-year-old boy whose family was killed in the Texas mall shooting, Cardinals star player Kyler Murray came into the spotlight and received a lot of love and respect from his fans.
Kyler is the first quarterback in the history of the team to have two Pro Bowl selections in all three of his rookie seasons. By doing this, he became one of only three NFL quarterbacks to be selected to the Pro Bowl each of the previous two seasons, getting listed with the likes of Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, and Russell Wilson.
What transpired in Texas to leave Kyler Murray feeling broken?
Texas residents saw a heartbreaking incident in which eight people were shot to death and at least seven others were injured before the shooter was taken out by a police officer. In this unfortunate incident, three Korean Americans were caught and murdered via shooting, including the couple Cho Kyu Song, 37, and Kang Shin Young, 35, as well as one of their children. A family of four has now been reduced to a family of one..
How did Murray assist the impacted children?
The Cardinals star was deeply hurt by the incident, and he immediately shared his grief on Twitter along with his desire to assist the impacted parties.
‘This is sickening. Prayers to the mass shooting victims in Allen, Texas. If there is anyway I can help those affected by this tragedy please let me know. When is this s*** gonna stop?” he tweeted.
The quarterback kept his word and stepped forward to offer his assistance by donating $15,000 to a GoFundMe campaign that has raised $1.6 million for the six-year-old.

The Cardinals made the 25-year-old their first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. He managed to live up to thee hype by winning the NFL Rookie of the Year award during his rookie season. With 3,500+ passing yards and 400+ rushing yards in every single of the first three seasons he played, the Cardinals star became the only player in NFL history to accomplish this feat.
Though the amount is not a lot for the quarterback, his concern for others will probably leave a mark in the minds of his supporters as, in today’s society, many so-called successful people tend to put society’s needs last.
