Mother of USC player beats breast cancer, joins son for interview
A quick glance at the box score tells you that USC defensive back Adoree' Jackson had a good day.
After all, the junior was responsible for a special teams touchdown, taking a punt 77 yards to the house in the third quarter of the Trojans' 45-7 win over Utah State.
But during Jackson's postgame interview with the Pac-12 Network, it became clear just how good of a day it was for the Jackson family.
While Jackson was discussing the win and his third career punt return touchdown, his mother came over and gave him a long hug. After separating, she was asked to stick around for the interview, where she revealed the reason for her emotional state.
"I wasn't able to come to no games last year," she said. "I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, but God, he saved me in four months, and he gave me back to my baby so I could see every game and be the proudest momma.
"I'm so proud of my son. I'm so proud of you, baby."
The mother-son love could not have been any clearer, and it was evident that Jackson having his mom cheering him on meant just as much to him as being able to return to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was to her. It's hard to find a more beautiful moment.
