The Wichita Eagle - - Sports - BY PETE GRATHOFF [email protected]­star.com

Thanks to the snow storm, a num­ber of peo­ple likely had trou­ble get­ting to work on Sat­ur­day — in­clud­ing Chiefs of­fen­sive line­man Jeff Allen.

Allen made it to Ar­row­head Sta­dium in time for the AFC di­vi­sional play­off game against the In­di­anapo­lis Colts thanks to a Good Sa­mar­i­tan named Dave. Now Allen is ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help in find­ing Dave, be­cause Allen wants to re­pay the fa­vor. The prize for lend­ing a help­ing hand? Tick­ets to the AFC Cham­pi­onship Game next week.

Not bad, right? Here is what Allen tweeted shortly be­fore mid­night:

“My car got stuck in the snow be­fore the game & a nice guy named Dave help pull me out without know­ing I was a player. I want to give him tick­ets to the AFC cham­pi­onship game for help­ing but don’t have a way to con­tact him. He drove a 97 or 98 Black Sub­ur­ban. Pls RT #Chief­sKing­dom”

So where are you Dave? Your prize awaits. Allen was asked why he didn’t get Dave’s phone num­ber.

He wrote: “I did that that’s how I got his name but be­fore I saved his # in my phone some­one called and I an­swered. After I fin­ished the call the num­ber was gone. Things were a lit­tle hec­tic and I was run­ning late for the game. Sorry I didn’t han­dle the sit­u­a­tion the way you would like”

Allen even­tu­ally found his Dave.

He tweeted this: “Up­date: De­spite the re­cent in­flux in peo­ple chang­ing their name to Dave in the KC area lol, I was ac­tu­ally able to track down the Dave that helped me thanks to the power of so­cial me­dia and #Chief­sKind­gom. Thanks for your kind­ness @Davidco59434183”

David Cochran tweeted: “Look all I try to do is sur­vive and live life one day at a time and I love to go all out to try to help ppl”
