New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. took some time Monday night to honor the military.

Beckham shook the hand of every military individual on the field prior to the Monday Night Football game against the Minnesota Vikings.

“The line was a little long. I didn’t know. I got halfway through it and I had to ask one of them, ‘How many is y’all?’ He said, ‘There’s a lot of us.’ I said, ‘Well, I really appreciate what y’all do,'” Beckham told Sporting News. (SLIDESHOW: Celebrate The NFL Season With The Hottest Cheerleaders In The Game)

The electric receiver also added, “For someone to sacrifice everything that they have for others, just the concept of it, it gives me chills. I don’t even know how to explain it. They sacrifice everything. It’s unselfish.”

This is not the first time Beckham has honored the military. He also wore special cleats honoring 9/11 for the first game of the season.
