Mac Smith Pays It Forward: 11/12/12

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

This week's installment of Pay It Forward starts out in Northwest Lubbock near the intersection of 4th and Milwaukee.

We set up with our Pay It Forward sign searching for our next playmaker.  It didn't take long for someone to show up. 

Mac Smith spotted our sign and pulled up to us.  Mac is a student at Texas Tech University.  Mac had seen Pay It Forward recently and knew exactly how it worked.

Mac chose a neighbor that lives across the street from him.  Mac's neighbor is Troy Spradling.  Troy was in a motorcycle accident a couple of years ago.  The accident cost him his leg and his job.

Mac said Troy is an awesome neighbor who keeps an eye on the neighborhood and had actually stopped someone from breaking into their house awhile back. 

When Mac arrived at Troy's house, Troy was sitting outside.  Troy was completely surprised and was moved that his neighbors would think of him.  Troy thanked Mac and told us that he couldn't have a better neighbor than Mac.

Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon!  You could become our next playmaker!
