Anthony Richardson has already won over the hearts of thousands, if not millions of people following a story of what he did after a rookie event.
The now-former Florida Gator showed his true character during a dinner attended by a bunch of rookies where he helped clean the room after it was left a mess.
1075 The Fan’s Jake Query recalled a story on his radio show on how Richardson left a lasting impact on the NFL’s executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent at the NFL rookie orientation.
“Hey Jake, I went to the Indiana Sports Corp luncheon on Tuesday, and Chris Ballard was the speaker. He told a story about Anthony Richardson and the NFL’s rookie orientation program. Troy Vincent, of the NFL, called Ballard after the draft to tell him what an impact Anthony Richardson had left on him at the orientation program.

“Specifically, after the dinner attended by all potential draftees, the room was left a mess. Everyone was leaving and Troy Vincent saw one person who stayed behind and was bussing tables before the staff came back into the room. Vincent walked up and approached him and said, ‘You don’t need to do this.’ To which Anthony Richardson responded, ‘We left this room in an unacceptable condition and it’s not right for us to expect the staff to clean it all up.’
“Vincent said that Richardson told him that he was free to go to which Richardson basically said, ‘No, it’s all right. I’d like to stay and help.’ And he did until the room was cleaned up entirely. And he was the last person working along with workers on the shift.”
The story is a testament to the character that Richardson possesses, something that has been well documented throughout the draft process.
Richardson was selected with the fourth overall pick last month by the Colts.
Starting in Week 1 of the upcoming season, there is no guarantee that Anthony Richardson will be atop the depth chart for the Colts. However, if he continues to show good character and good play on the field, it will only be a matter of time before Indianapolis will be ready to put him in the starting lineup.
If anything, he has certainly made thousands of more fans across the country based off this story.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
