    South Florida redshirt junior offensive lineman Danous Estenor may not be the most accomplished football player on his team, but he has done something very few people have: he helped save a life.

    This is not an exaggeration.

    The event took place in February when Estenor was heading to the Bulls Den Cafe on the school’s campus. Across the parking lot, he saw a man trapped under a car. Two men were struggling to free Pedro Arzola, a tow truck driver who got caught under a rear wheel. Enter Estenor to save the day.

    I just see his legs,” Estenor recalled the situation. “The car is crushing him. He’s not moving. I’m thinking, ‘Oh, God, this guy is going to die.’ ”

    “I tried to lift the car, and when I first tried, it didn’t budge. I backed up. I don’t know. But I felt this energy come, and I lifted it. I don’t know how, but somebody pulled him from the car.”
