The former Cornhusker wasted no time in springing into action.
“I saw a lot of smoke, so I started grabbing bricks and throwing them out the window,” Armstrong said. “I realized they were trying to get out the right rear window. So, I crawled in there, grabbed her, picked her up and dragged her over to the window, and we pulled her out. At the end of the day, I was just trying to find her. The I’ve known since I was a little girl.”

The fire caused “significant damage inside and out,” according to KSNB.
“We’re sitting in their living room and the neighbor’s house goes up in flames. We run over and I deal with the girl who hit the windows to get free, Tommy and his mom jump into the burning house to get the rest of the people out out,” Tommy’s wife Jaylyn said in a tweet.
Armstrong was forced to move into his father’s house in Texas when the 2005 hurricane damaged his mother’s house.
He was Nebraska’s starting quarterback from 2013 to 2016 and is their all-time leader in passing yards (8,871) and touchdowns (67). He went 30-13 with the Cornhuskers.
