Pope steps in to save the day


Former UGA star and current Kansas City Chief Leonard Pope demonstrated an act of heroism this past weekend.

Americus, GA native Anne Moore and her six-year old son Bryson were thrilled that Pope was in his hometown.

Pope saved the youngster from drowning.

Moore said that Pope was the only person at the party who knew how to swim. Her son would probably have drowned if Pope had not been there.

Moore said that her son is still a little traumatized but other than that he is OK. She called Pope a true hero.
