Have you seen the heartwarming video going around on social media? A football player from Kuna High School who committed a kind deed was featured in a video Kelly Miller put on TikTok, and it quickly gained popularity!
I'm crying right now. As I'm enjoying my coffee, a young man approaches and asks if I'd like to purchase one of the tickets he is selling for his high school football team, which are for restaurants and other similar establishments. I told him that until I receive my check on the third, I will be without money. In her now-famous TikTok video, Kelly Miller claimed, "If he could come back, I would buy two of them. "
"He approaches, hands me the ticket and $80 in cash, and tells me to go get food or whatever I need. This young man was a shining star in the sky, and I've been struggling so much lately!"
Miller was truly floored by the kindness of the Kuna High School football player. To properly thank the youngster, she sought him out.
Miller added, "I was just surprised since you don't see youngsters do that these days. I uploaded it to TikTok in the hopes that it would work its magic.”
It did that. On social media, Miller's video of what happened that day outside of her house received a lot of views, likes, and comments.
Miller told KTVB, "There are so many comments, this guy is great, he deserves to be rewarded."
Everyone was curious about who this youngster was! including Jeff Schank, the head football coach at Kuna High.
“My phone started going nuts," Schank recalled. "I felt tremendous pride. I'll be honest; when I first viewed the video, it almost made me cry. We made a lot of effort to identify the child. The government is following me and enquiring about this child."
However, none of the players volunteered when the good deed was mentioned at practice. This young person appeared to prefer to avoid the spotlight.
Miller was invited as a special guest to the Kuna High Football game that weekend. Miller was hoping that the lad would come looking for her in the stadium.
All Miller could think of was giving him and his parents a big embrace for raising such a remarkable young man. "I didn't even get his name," she said.
Everyone learned who it was at the Friday night football game. Jamison Yannarella, a freshman athlete, is 14 years old. He went to greet Kelly after spotting her in the stands.
Yannarella remarked, "I didn't anticipate it to blow up this much. It's kind of crazy." It wasn't about me or what we do; the act itself is what matters most.
I went up into the stands, sat next to her, gave her a big hug, and we snapped a photo. Her attendance at the game was lovely. She was quite appreciative that I visited her; it was an interesting experience. My dad always told me that there are always people who have it tougher than you do and that you should keep that in mind and assist others when you can.
Even his parents were not informed of Yannarella's nice deed.
Jamison's proud father, Frank Yannarella, remarked, "He also kept it from us." His mother and I are extremely impressed and proud of him.
Kuna High School is also. Jamison is undoubtedly deserving of the football team's honor. Coach Jeff Schank stated, "I believe we could use a few more Jamisons in the world we live in." "People who act morally just out of conscience."
Kelly Miller hopes that sharing her experience would motivate others to do the same. Miller remarked, "I would love for our young people to witness how infectious kindness is. People don't experience much happiness, therefore I thought this was a joyful thing!"
Jamison informed us that he was setting aside money for a new phone. That is how he was able to offer Kelly such a large sum of money. He wasn't prepared for all the attention, and he is eager to resume playing football while remaining anonymous. He has no idea that he has influenced the whole community.
