Nothing is more rewarding than repaying those who have given you the most. For most people, it is their parents.
And Washington Redskins defensive tackle Daron Payne feels the same.
On Saturday Payne shared with the world on Twitter that he had just bought his mother a brand new house following his second season in the NFL.
“I promised my ma that I would get her, her dream house one day and yesterday I got the opportunity to check that off my list,” read Payne’s tweet. “I’m grateful for my family god blessed me with and there’s nothing in the world I wouldn’t do for them.”
