“Give back to your community even if its not impoverished. Be a hero. Bigger than ball,” Ngakoue wrote in part on the post.

You can read the full announcement below.

This is a 100% pure class move from Ngakoue. Right now, there are a lot of people struggling during the coronavirus pandemic.

We’ve never been through a crisis like this before. Families that might struggle during any regular school year are hit harder than ever.

Ngakoue is from the area, he made it big playing the NFL, has made some money playing football and now he’s giving back to the community.

This is the kind of stuff we love seeing. If we’re going to criticize athletes when they do stupid stuff, then we should absolutely shine a light on them when they go above and beyond.

Ngakoue providing computers to students in need is the definition of that happening.
