WACO, Texas — A boy and his father got a nice surprise Friday night at a Texas bowling alley. It’s not often one gets to roll strikes next to one of the top wide receivers in college football.

Cory Webb and his son had gone to a bowling alley in Waco but were told there would be no lanes open until at least 9:30 p.m., KWTX reported.

One reason for the crowded house was the Baylor football team, which had reserved 20 lanes.

“I turned to my son and said “Oh well, not tonight,” and we started to head out the door,” Webb wrote on Twitter. "As we were walking out, I heard a guy say ‘You can jump in with us if you want to.’ I turned around and it was a guy named Denzel Mims.

“He just saw a dad and a disappointed son leaving the bowling alley and invited us to join them,” Webb wrote on Twitter. “They gave us our own lane and a couple of free soft drinks as well. It made my son’s night. It was a really kind gesture from a really nice young man.”
