Former Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. and his mom, Nadine, rescued some neighbors from a burning home in Gulfport, Miss. on Monday night. Armstrong -- who played for the Cornhuskers from 2013-2016 -- was visiting his family and found himself in the right place at the right time.

Armstrong told local TV station WLOX that he was concerned when he saw a lot of smoke coming from the neighbor's house. He knew there was no time to waste and jumped into action by throwing bricks through the window. Armstrong didn't sit back to wait for the fire department, instead he crawled in to help get people out of there as quickly as possible.

His wife, Jaylyn, called him and his mom heroes and explained what happened on a Twitter post.

"We're sitting in her living room and the neighbors house burst in flames," she wrote.
