Video: WR Brandin Cooks’ Mom Sobs Over New Car
On the heels of a Biletnikoff Award-winning 2013 season and clocking the fastest 40-yard dash time at the NFL combine, former Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks is projected to be selected in the first round of the draft and make a lot of money. Some of which he already used to surprise his mother, Andrea, in a big way.
Putting the $100,000 he earned from Adidas for clocking the fastest combine time to great use, Cooks recently rewarded his mom with a new Mercedes-Benz GLK 350. Upon seeing the new car in the garage of their Stockton, CA, home, she was brought to tears.
For a woman who raised Brandin along with two older sons after their father died of a heart attack when Brandin was six, this was a reward well-deserved.
