Coach Cotton gives Mike a spot on the football team.
You've got a spot!
Leigh Anne gives Mike a car to teach him how to drive.
Big Mike: "It's nice, never had one of these before." Leigh Anne: "What, a room to yourself?" Big Mike: "A bed." (Lewis, 247) This quote leads to the theme of kindness paying off because little does Leigh Anne know, her generosity will lead Mike to become an NFL star. In her eyes all she was doing was giving a poor kid a home and make him feel welcome, but to him, she gave him a whole new life.
The final result of everyone's kindness toward Mike is him being in the NFL and being able to take care of them after they did so much for him.
Here is a new house. Thank you for everything you have done for me.
Coach Cotton gives Mike a chance to play football. While this helps the team, I don't think Coach Cotton realizes what this opportunity means to Mike. This opens up a whole new world for Mike because he realizes how talented he is and ends up going to the NFL.
Mike: " Thank you, so much for this car. It's more than I ever expected." Leigh Anne:" No problem. It's the least I could do." (Lewis, 277)Leigh Anne gives Mike a car to teach him how to drive. This is something that he had always wanted to learn how to do, so out of the kindness of her heart, Leigh Anne gets him a car and tries to teach him how to drive.
This solution was reached by Mike working hard along with having a strong support system. People believed in him which helped him reach the goal of being in the NFL. As a result of everyone's kindness, he is now able to support all of them.
