Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Dallas Cowboys rookie Chidobe Awuzie recently bought his mom a Range Rover for her birthday.

The 22-year-old cornerback posted a photo of the new ride Thursday on social media.

"She always wanted one.. Happy Birthday Mommy," Awuzie wrote for the caption of his social media posts, which showed his mom standing next to the sparkling white ride.

Awuzie was a second round pick by the Cowboys in the 2017 NFL Draft. The Colorado product had 25 tackles, seven passes defensed, an interception and a forced fumble this season. He appeared in 10 games and started six games during his rookie campaign.
