Nothing like a bit of humility to help end a Thursday night on a good note.  In this story courtesy of Larry Brown Sports, St. Louis Rams running back Terrance Ganaway has quite the story.

Ganaway who just finished his rookie season with the Rams made a decent living this year, bring in $390,000.  That’s still comes out to $195,000 plus after Uncle Sam gets his cut.

Ganaway wanting to save money, be an example to his children, and most importantly stay out of trouble took a job at Jimmy Johns sandwich shop making $7 to just that.

Kudos to a sixth round pick for showing some humility, maturity, and just all around general sense of money management.

He may not be making that much money at Jimmy John’s, but he’s surely not losing any of the NFL money he earned.
