Damar Hamlin’s college teammate is recovering right where Bill’s safety number is painted on the field

Sport sometimes has a bizarre but beautiful way of honoring and remembering, and that’s exactly what happened on the field following Damar Hamlin’s cardiac arrest.

The day after the Buffalo Bills’ security collapsed on the field during a game, the Buffalo Sabers’ Tage Thompson scored an overtime winner, his third goal of the night exactly three minutes into overtime.

It was also his third hat-trick of the season, and the game was played on January 3.

Hamlin wears the number 3, and the entire Sabers team wore jerseys with his number in Hamlin’s honor before a game.

The coincidences didn’t end there. The last involved Hamlin’s college teammates from the University of Pittsburgh.

About an hour after the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans gathered for a shared prayer ahead of their all-or-nothing title game against AFC South, Hamlin’s Pitt teammate, Titans’ Rashad Weaver, was able to rediscover a Jacksonville fumble. But it was no ordinary shovel.

The #3 on each 30-yard line on fields in the NFL is outlined in red in honor of Hamlin. And that’s where Weaver reclaimed the ball.

Weaver and Hamlin played together for the Panthers for five years.

The Titans also capitalized on the sales. Joshua Dobbs found Chigoziem Okonkwo for a 21-yard touchdown to give Tennessee a 10-0 lead.

Hamlin has improved significantly in the last few days since entering cardiac arrest on the field during Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He underwent CPR for nine minutes in the field and medical staff used a defibrillator to revive him.

DAMAR HAMLIN MAKES FIRST PUBLIC COMMENTS SINCE CARDIAC ARREST: ‘LOVE WAS OVERWHELMING’

Hamlin made his first public comments on Saturday in an Instagram post.

“When you put true love into the world, it comes back to you three times as much…” he said. “The love was overwhelming, but I am grateful for every single person who prayed and reached out for me. We brought the world back together behind it. If you know me, you know this is gone only makes me stronger. On a long way keep praying for me!”

When Hamlin first woke up earlier this week, he wrote to doctors asking who won Monday’s game and he was told it had been postponed before it was later cancelled. He was also able to speak to his teammates on Friday and tell them he loves them.

Over $8 million was donated his charity’s toy ride which originally had a goal of $2,500.
