Redskins player Derrius Guice once said that he wanted to use his money from the NFL to take care of his mother and the rookie running back did just that on Monday when he surprised his mom with a brand new car.
The 21-year-old athlete posted several videos to on Tuesday showing the touching moment he drove up to his mother Beulah’s house to surprise her with a white Jaguar SUV.
In the first video, Beulah is standing on the front porch of her Baton Rouge home in tears as her son drives up and parks the shiny new car out front.

‘No way!’ she says, laughing and walking towards Guice to give him a big hug.
As Beulah takes a seat, she covers her face with her hands, getting emotional.
In another video, Beulah breaks down in tears as Guice pulls out a bottle of champagne.
‘Cry for what, we got f**king champagne!’, he says, opening the bottle and spraying bubbly everywhere.
Guice said in a tweet the next thing he’s going to purchase for his mother is a new house.
It appears Guice bought the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace for his mom, which starts around $42,065.
In May, Guice told the that one of the things he wanted to do after signing with the Washington Redskins was to take care of his mother.
‘That’s all I’m worried about,’ he said. ‘I got everything I want. I don’t really need nothing, man. I’ve been blessed, so I’m just taking care of my mom’.
Guice was a second-round pick in the NFL draft in April. He signed a four-year with the Redskins for over $4million, reports. The rookie athlete received a $1.8million signing bonus spread out over the four seasons and is guaranteed a $480,000 base salary for this year, according to the outlet.
In the short amount of time Guice has been on the Redskins, he has done a lot of giving back. Last week, the footballer donated $1,000 to a Louisiana State University student who created a GoFundMe for help finishing her final year of school.
Jhane Garner, who was a trainer for the LSU football team when Guice was a sophomore, posted that her Taylor Opportunity Program for Students scholarship expired after four years and she needed help coming up with the $5,000 needed to finish her fifth and final year of college.
‘I have tried to apply for several loans but have gotten turned down for every single one. This means that I will have to pay for my tuition out of pocket,’ she wrote. ‘I am really in need and would appreciate any donation that is given. $1, $5…. anything helps! I’ve worked too hard & I’ve come too far to stop now!’
Guice was one of the first people to donate to Garner.
‘Once a family always a family,’ he tweeted to the shocked student when she thanked him for his generosity.
Guice has also helped raise more than $20,000 for a cancer center in his hometown.
