ECU Football Player's Mom Gets the Best Mother's Day Surprise


It's always hard to find just the right gift for Mother's Day. 

Luckily for one East Carolina football player, he got an unexpected assist in that area. Pirates head coach Scottie Montgomery decided to go a different route rather than simply giving a player a scholarship ... he took it directly to the guy's mother.

Kiante Anderson is a standout defensive end for ECU and has certainly earned his spot on the field, prompting Montgomery wanted to honor the walk-on with a full athletic scholarship. Since it's close to Mother's Day the coach went directly to Anderson's mom's job to give it to her in person. Awesome gesture by the coach.

That gift is priceless.
