The Saskatchewan Roughrider running back tweeted that he was stranded in Saskatoon and needed a lift to Regina.
Mack Nelson replied that he was heading that way and offered to pick him up.
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.
