Running back for the Seattle Seahawks, Marshawn Lynch, knows the importance of giving back to the community.
Earlier this week, the football player returned to his home in Oakland, California to work with his biggest admirers at the ninth annual Fam 1st Family Youth Football Camp.
Coaching for hours on end can get exhausting, and no one understands that better than Marshawn. That’s why when he was delivered some chicken wings on the field, he stashed some in his sock to save for later, according to Seahawks.com. When later arrived, he took the wings out of his socks and ate them for a snack.
We wonder if he had any Skittles stored in his other sock.

His unconventional coaching methods are no doubt paying off. Delton Edwards, Lynch’s coach at Oakland Tech, tells seahawks.com, “He always comes back and donates his time and money to the kids in Oakland. They love him, they love him to death.”
UPDATE: Lynch explains to Maxim why he kept chicken wings in his socks: “My auntie fried up some chicken and I had my hands full, and I don’t have no pockets on my shorts, so I just had to use what I had.” Makes sense.
