REGINA - A Saskatchewan student has a smile as wide as a football field after he got to spend two hours with CFL Grey Cup MVP Kory Sheets.

The Saskatchewan Roughrider running back tweeted that he was stranded in Saskatoon and needed a lift to Regina.

He had caught a flight south to Connecticut for Thanksgiving and arrived back in Saskatoon, but then realized he hadn't lined up a ride back to Regina.

Mack Nelson replied that he was heading that way and offered to pick him up.

Nelson says he was blown away by the experience.

Sheets gave Nelson an autographed jersey to thank him for his good turn.

"As a die-hard Rider fan, he's, you know, one of the most famous people that I could ever try and meet," Nelson said.
