NFL star Arian Foster pays for student's textbooks after getting request on Twitter

With his sophomore year at Texas A&M International University approaching, Ernesto Guerrero was in a position many college students are familiar with: He needed $200 to buy textbooks.

So, Guerrero decided to tweet at Houston Texans running back Arian Foster, asking the star athlete to help pay for them.

Foster has more than 500,000 Twitter followers. Guerrero knew the football player wouldn’t likely see his message, and told Sporting News that it was meant to be a “humor tweet.”
