Kansas State punter Nick Walsh is using the Wildcats’ success for a good cause.
For reaching the Cactus Bowl, each Kansas State player received a Yeti cooler, among the Big 12’s best bowl gifts this season. But in an effort to raise awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters, Walsh has decided to give his away.

Walsh is giving the cooler to one person who retweets his tweet, which encourages people to become a “big brother” or “big sister” for a child through the organization. Big Brothers Big Sisters provides “children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever,” according to its website.
This is a tremendous act of kindness from Walsh, especially during the holiday season. He clearly doesn’t feel as if he needs to the cooler; even if he does, he knows there are children in need who could use support more.
For as good of a person as Walsh appears to be, he’s also quite the punter. Walsh, a senior, made the All-Big 12 second team while averaging a career-high 43.7 yards on his 54 punts.
Walsh will conclude his career in the Cactus Bowl on Dec. 26 against UCLA. No matter what he does on the field, he’s doing his best to make a bigger impact off it.
