Just hours before the Kansas City Chiefs' playoff game on Saturday against the Indianapolis Colts , offensive lineman Jeff Allen was stranded in the snow and needed help.
"I was driving down 40 Highway and saw a couple cars stuck," Dave Cochran told KSHB News. "I pulled one car out before that, then I saw another car stuck and I told my old lady, 'We have to help him'."
Cochran, who is homeless and lives in his truck with his girlfriend and dog, had no idea who was in the car.
"It said Texas plates," Cochran said. "He wasn't used to this weather. He isn't used to this coldness. He is from Texas."
My car got stuck in the snow before the game & a nice guy named Dave help pull me out without knowing I was a player. I want to give him tickets to the AFC championship game for helping but don't have a way to contact him. He drove a 97 or 98 Black Suburban.

It didn't take long for Allen's plea to get answered.
Update: Despite the recent influx in people changing their name to Dave in the KC area lol, I was actually able to track down the Dave that helped me thanks to the power of social media and #ChiefsKindgom. Thanks for your kindness https://t.co/e4OkEg6AAw— Jeff Allen (@JeffAllen71) January 13, 2019
Cochran, who said he didn't expect anything in return, had never been to a Chiefs game in his life.
"It's like a dream come true," Cochran said. "I saw the message this morning, and I am not going to fake with you, call me soft if you want to homeboys, I started bawling to know he is a man of his word and he reached out to contact me."
