Look: Sony Michel Hooks Mom And Dad Up With New Rides


Georgia great and Patriots rookie running back Sony Michel has used his first NFL paycheck to buy his mom and dad new cars, a purchase common among many rookies. Michel has often stated that he owes it all to his parents, who made serious sacrifices for him to get an education and play football.

Michel became the 3rd most decorated Georgia rusher while at UGA and the 31st overall pick in the NFL Draft.  After signing an endoresment deal with Adidas and a contract with the Patriots, Michel bought his mom an Audi Q7 and dad a Chevy Silverado.  He made it clear that he wanted to take care of his parents before anything, as seen on his Instagram story below.

As seen in CBS Sports’ video below, Michel’s parents, who were Haitian immigrants, had to work low paying jobs and sometimes for nothing at his school, American Heritage, in order for him to play football and go to class. Now, it’s Sony’s turn to take care of them.
