One major goal athletes set out to achieve in their career is to be able to give back to those who raised them and helped them. Pittsburgh Steelers and former Pitt running back James Conner was able to do that in a big way when he was able to buy his father a truck.
Conner tweeted a video of the entire exchange and moment. The elder Conner was shocked, even going as far as to start handing his son the keys to the truck, assuming it was actually his. James made sure to let his dad know the new truck was a gift. While it’s unclear the exact model of the truck, it’s clearly all black and said to be a new 2020 edition.

The whole Conner family can now drive the truck down to Heinz Field to watch James and the Steelers play next season (if fans are allowed, of course). And who knows what kind of gift James may buy for his loved ones if he can take his game to another level and earn a new contract, something James has been vocal about hoping is with the Steelers.
