New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara made a pretty loud statement with his postgame attire after a Monday Night Football game this season. It got mixed reviews, obviously, but a tradition he has started this season is why he should definitely be your new favorite NFL player.
While most players in the National Football League take Tuesday — every team’s usual day off — to rest and recover from the past game, the 5-foot-10, 215-pound Pro Bowl selection spends his days doing blue-collar jobs around the Big Easy.
So what did Kamara do before the NFC Championship Game against the Los Angeles Rams? He was a trash man, hanging from the back of a garbage truck.
There are countless NFL players who give back to their communities, and Kamara is certainly amazing for what he does when he’s not putting on a show at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Seriously, though, during the week before the biggest game of the season, with a Super Bowl LIII berth on the line, the star running back Norcross, Georgia spent his day off as a garbage man for IV Waste. It’s as unconventional as it is special and thanks to Larry Morrow and Sidney Torres, the entire world got to see proof.
After a NFL playoff win over the Philadelphia Eagles last week, the Saints are looking to get past the Rams for a spot at the Super Bowl in Atlanta against either the Kansas City Chiefs or New England Patriots.
So while quarterback Drew Brees and wide receiver Michael Thomas get set to spark the offense, know that Kamara, who racked up over 1,500 total yards from scrimmage with 18 touchdowns this season, will definitely bring his lunch pale to work.
