While Mecole Hardman Jr. is now a Kansas City Chief…the University of Georgia had him first.He’s looking great at his first training camp with the Chiefs.But while the fans are excited about him, he’s even more excited to be a rookie in the NFL – because it has allowed him to fulfill a lifelong dream of buying his mom, Danyell, a new house.
He’s been dreaming of doing this for his mom since he was eight years old. Maybe that’s why he decided to forgo his senior year at Georgia to enter the NFL draft.
The gift had an even bigger impact on the family than normal, considering Danyell had to deal with a brain tumor scare in 2013, during which Mecole rarely left her side.
After Danyell regained her strength and good health, Mecole continued to pursue his dream of playing football.
And all that hard work and dedication by everyone involved finally paid off, as Danyell moved into her new home -- and Mecole made a new promise, telling his mom that it was once again his turn to take care her now.
