Darius Leonard is on quite a roll.
The linebacker was drafted in the second round out of South Carolina State by the Indianapolis Colts. He was a revelation for the Colts, leading the NFL in tackles and being named All-Pro. He won NFL defensive rookie of the year. He said he surprised himself with his immediate success.
Then another highlight: He surprised his mom with a new car.
Leonard posted a video from him surprising his mother with a Mercedes-Benz. Her reaction is amazing:
Gotta keep mom dukes happy !! pic.twitter.com/r0jOR5SvK0

Leonard has a bright future and should have plenty more big moments (and, if he chooses, luxury cars from his second contract) ahead. But it’ll be hard to top the highlight of seeing his mom so happy at her son’s surprise gift.
