Former University of Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater delivered on his promise as a third-grader to give his mother a Cadillac.
Bridgewater is one of the top-rated NFL hopefuls in the NFL draft this year, and his mother, Rose Murphy, is a breast cancer survivor, ABC reports. When Bridgewater was in the third grade, he told her, “When I make it to the NFL, I’m going to buy you a pink Cadillac Escalade with pink rims.”
He was able to make that dream come true with the help of Cadillac and filmmaker Spike Lee. After learning of Bridgewater’s story and the fight with cancer, he directed a seven-minute mini-documentary about the mother and son entitled, “A #Promise2Rose.”
When she received the big pink surprise, Rose was flabbergasted.
“It was just amazing,” she said. “I was in awe. I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ It was a long time coming and just to see it, I was in awe. I didn’t think it was going to happen this soon. I thought, later on, a couple years down the road.”
Bridgewater is excited for the draft and says he’s open to any team that wants him.
