Tennessee's Mariota: Wouldn't Leave Until Every Kid Caught The Ball

Hey. That's our Titans quarterback, Marcus Mariota. Look at him tossing the ball to those kids. He didn't just "toss the ball," he refused to leave until every child caught it. For some kids, it took 3 or 4 tries, but Mariota was patient and kept at it. "The Music City Blitz," held at Nissan Stadium, gave athletes from Tennessee's chapter of the Special Olympics, a chance to experience a taste of the pro-football life. Mariota was one of many team members who attended, and was one of the last to leave. 


Marcus Mariota went above and beyond. He told the Tennessean, he wanted everyone to have the feeling of achievement of grabbing an actual pass from an NFL quarterback.

Not all professional athletes act like spoiled children. There's Marcus Mariota - with the heart of a Titan - for the win.
