NFL star Arian Foster performs kind deed for student on Twitter

Arian Foster Says UT Boosters Gave Him '40, 50 Grand,' Then Backtracks

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is a star on the field, and on Twitter. With more than 500K followers, Foster tries to stay as engaged as possible with his fans and this past weekend was no different.

Texas A&M International University student Ernesto Guerrero took to Twitter to ask Foster if he would be able to pay for his books for his upcoming fall semester. Now, if you've ever been a college student, you know this feeling is all too real. The cost of books are outrageous, so why not ask a professional athlete?

According to Sporting News, Guerrero knew it was highly unlikely that Foster would see his message given his following and said the tweet was simply meant as a joke. Well joke or not, Foster replied and made Guerrero's day. Check out the awesome exchange below.

Guerrero was clearly taken aback but excited as any college student would be. Mashable had reached out to Arian Foster who said in an email:

"I'm just trying to look out for the next generation."
