Most professional athletes feel a debt of gratitude towards their parents for all the hours they've spent making their careers possible. Once they're able to, sports stars often return the favor of generosity. Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner exemplified this in an awesome way by presenting his father with a new toy that brought a full minute of jubilation this weekend -- yup, he bought his pops a truck!
In a short video posted to his Twitter account, Connor is shown pulling up to his father's house and presenting him the pair of keys to a brand new SUV. His father's reaction is a hilarious mix of complete joy and utter disbelief.
Conner's father's reluctance to swing open the doors and get into the vehicle makes this clip even better, and watching his constant expression of shock as Conner jubilantly dances around is sure to make anyone smile.
The gesture is certainly a great thing to see, as Conner is beginning to reap the benefits of his up and coming NFL career. After coming out victorious in his battle with cancer, Conner has become a staple of the Steelers offense, though he is looking to come back from a down 2019 season, featuring 464 yards rushing and four touchdowns in 10 games.
