It’s not every day you get to buy your mom her dream house and dream car, but Monday afternoon Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper shared that he had done just that for his mom. The University of Alabama-product has been a key cog in the Silver and Black’s offense the past two seasons and has proven to be one of the most electric wide outs in the NFL.

Born and raised in Miami, Cooper didn’t have the easiest of upbringings, but is happy to give his mom something she deserves.

The text of his Instagram post read, “I grew up in the projects, we didn’t even own a car.. The whole story is way too long and melancholic, but just know a dream can go a long way if it’s followed by faith and hard work. It took us 20 [plus] years but now my mother has the house and car of her dreams. You deserve it mama, I love you. #JustTheBeginning”
