LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

This week's Pay It Forward segment started out along MLK just south of 19th Street.  WE set up with our Pay It Forward sign seeking this week's playmaker. 

Everne Williams spotted us from a distance and ran to our location in the parking lot down the street.

Everne was very excited to be a part of Pay It Forward.

We asked her who she wanted to help out.

Everne told us, "I'm thinking Darius Lucky.  He goes to our church and he's a veteran and he was about to foreclose on a house and it didn't fall through exactly how he wanted it to for a down payment so I know he would really, really appreciate it."

Darius was difficult to locate as he was on a lunch break, but we finally caught up with him at his workplace.

We caught him as he pulled into the parking lot from his lunch break.

Everne counted out $300 to Darius who had no idea what was going on when he arrived from his lunch break.

Darius gladly accepted the money.

Darius told us it would help secure signatures on his house situation.  

Darius told Everne, "Thank you very much.  You're a God send."

Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon.  You may become our next playmaker.
