But it's where he performed his heroic action that's gaining him national attention. Popps was at The Dome in Syracuse, New York watching a football match between Syracuse and Clemson.
The Fairmount Fire Department detailed the incident in a Facebook post, praising Popps for his quick thinking and calm demeanor throughout the ordeal.
The fire department said Popps was attending his first-ever game at the football stadium when he noticed a man losing consciousness. Popps quickly came to his aid.
The man went into cardiac arrest shortly after losing consciousness and Popps dragged him to a nearby hallway to perform CPR.
Popps' life-saving actions helped the man regain consciousness and start breathing again. The victim was transported from The Dome with no noticeable issues, according to the fire department.
