Steelers’ James Conner Delivers Heartwarming Gift To His Dad
Between Coronavirus and the racial inequality in the United States and throughout the world, it is easy to get depressed with the state of affairs right now. Having said that, there has been some good news as of late and Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner came through with some of that good news over the weekend.
In a now-viral video, Conner showed off the moment in which he gifted his dad a brand new pickup truck. As you can see from the clip below, Conner and his father are standing across the street from the truck when the Steelers star reveals that the truck now belongs to his dad. Conner’s father was shocked at first and then looked at his truck in giddy excitement. It was a beautiful moment between a father and son and we’re sure they will remember this for a very long time.
What made the video humorous was the fact that Conner’s dad refused to get in the car at first. Instead, he just wanted to admire the gift he had just been given. It adds a very pure quality to the video and we hope Conner’s dad enjoys and drives the hell out of that car.
Many parents are instrumental in the success of professional athletes as they have to make numerous sacrifices along the path to glory. Clearly, Conner felt his dad was a major part of that journey.
