Tee Higgins has been a member of the Cincinnati Bengals for less than a week. Drafted in the second round of the 2020 draft the wide receiver hasn’t played a single down in the NFL yet, but he’s already a winner. Before he had been drafted — and long before he can expect to receive a penny in contract money — he was already giving back to the community of Greenville, South Carolina with some help from Mattel and the Hot Wheels brand he has loved since he was a kid!
As this cool article by Glenn Oyoung for LACar.com documents (be sure to read the whole article by clicking on image or at the link at bottom of page), Higgins’ love of Hot Wheels traces back to his earliest days in youth football when his aunt would reward him by buying him a Hot Wheels car for each touchdown he scored.
Now he’s in a position to be the one handing out the Hot Wheels, and that’s just what he did for the Greenville Boys & Girls Club. Why Greenville? His college alma mater is in the nearby suburb of Clemson, for whom Higgins caught a touchdown in the 2018 National Championship game, helping deliver the national title for the Clemson Tigers!
So yeah, it seems Tee Higgins has been a winner all along, but because of his generosity we’ll be rooting for him to win some more in his Bengals uniform this fall!
