We all remember the broke college days where all we ate at times was top ramen. You know the instant cup of noodles you could get for under a dollar at the local grocery store. Well, San Francisco 49ers ILB Patrick Willis remembers all too well and stays grounded by continuing to eat the delicious food today despite making millions of dollars. A humble individual that remembers where he came from, Willis posted an instagram picture of his chicken flavored top ramen with a humble caption as he said:

Man! This dish been around for so long and is still my go to food when I’m super hungry and want something tasty and quick. Oh!and for those of you will act like u to good to eat it oh well lol#istillluvthem

This is one of the reasons why Willis continues to be a fan favorite among Bay Area fans. Not because he eats cup of noodles but because he is a humble individual that takes nothing for granted. He literally started from the bottom and now he’s here (Drake) and with Willis continuing to shine both on and off the field, we can’t help but support the grounded star as he is a consummate role model for any celebrity.
