TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A Florida deputy is being recognized for his compassion this month after offering to carry a young woman up 30 rows inside Doak Campbell Stadium during a Florida State University football game.

Before FSU’s matchup with the University of Miami on Nov. 13, the woman was having trouble walking up the stadium stairs to her seat, according to a Leon County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post.

A deputy, identified as C. Hall, noticed the girl struggling. Hall asked the girl and her mother if it was OK if he carried the girl up the stairs.

“He walked at least 30 rows up to her seat and did not hesitate one bit in offering to do so,” said Brittany Howard, who posted about the moment on Facebook.

Several days later, LCSO posted on Facebook congratulating Hall on his good work.

“Great job Deputy Hall! Thank you for being all in,” LCSO said.
