Ezekiel Elliott may be a rough, tough NFL player…but he’s also a big softie when it comes to the kids!

This weekend, Zeke and Cowboys teammates Jaylon Smith, Anthony Brown, Kavon Frazier and Taco Charlton took part in the Estrellas del Futuro youth football camp in Queretaro, Mexico.  The event was part of the National Fantasy Football Convention’s outreach attempts to spread the popularity of football in Mexico.

The event was a big success, but one of the younger participants at the camp started crying when his finger was struck by a football.  Zeke was there to provide comfort, specifically with a big, warm hug (awwww!).

The boy is the young son of Roberto Rodriguez who shared video of Zeke and the boy on Twitter.

Rodriguez Tweeted the following note along with the video:

@EzekielElliott since yesterday you became my idol, thanks for the way you reacted with my son after the ball hit him on his finger, you are the best
