NJ football players caught on tape - being honest

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Several New Jersey college football players are being rewarded for doing the right thing when no one was around – and their good deeds were caught on tape.

Four members of the William Paterson University football team walked into a store Sunday night. The store was actually closed but the lock was broken and the lights were on, making it appear the store was open for business.

As surveillance cameras showed, two of the players left money on the store counter, tax included, for their purchases.

The store manager gave each of the players a $50 gift certificate for their honesty, and NBC's "Today" show had the players on Wednesday morning.

The players told "Today" they at first thought the store being empty was a prank.

"We were scared," said Jelanie Bruce. "The store was creepy with the lights off. Honestly we thought it was a Halloween gag or something."

Anthony Biondi said the reaction has been overwhelming.

"It is just ecstatic knowing that that one good deed blew up nationwide and now everybody's hearing about it," he said.
