Sometimes the dream of getting to the NFL is about more than fame and stardom.
For Kansas City Chiefs rookie WR Mecole Hardman, getting to the NFL allowed him to give back to his mother. Hardman took to Twitter today to announce to everyone that he’d dreamed of buying his mom a house since he was just a boy and that he was finally able to do it. It was a great way to let her know that she did a good job raising him and taking care of him growing up.
They shot this beautiful video of the reveal, which you can check out down below:

“I’m just blessed,” said Danyell Hardman. “It makes you feel good as a mother to know that your kids would go to this depth. And he’s smart, making sure you know you did good. He’s smart enough to even put something on like this and give stuff like this to them.”
Touching words from Hardman’s mother, Danyell, who was in tears over the sight of her brand new home. Hardman gathered friends and family to surprise her with the gift. It was truly a special day.
“I feel good man,” Hardman said. “I am glad to get it out of the way and get her a home that she’s going to be staying in. So it’s a good feeling and I’m ready to get this furniture here and get her moved in.”
You could see Hardman’s excitement for his mother, especially when he was grinning from ear-to-ear and handing her the keys to her new home.
It’s always great to see Chiefs players being able to do something like this for their family. For a rookie, that type of selflessness makes you excited for what Hardman will be able to bring to the team in the future.
