Curtis Samuel rode in style to his first day of professional football as a Carolina Panther at Wofford College in South Carolina on Tuesday. It was just like he did on his first day of school, with his mother sitting in the passenger seat.
Samuel, 20, who recently got drafted by the Panthers in April, got a ride from his mom to his first day of football camp. He said that he originally planned on going to the football camp with his teammate Christian McCaffrey but their schedules didn't line up.
In the video, his mom is seen standing by the car as Samuel walks with a suitcase to football camp. Samuel is well-renowned for breaking records throughout his football trajectory. He is the third player since 2000 to reach 700 rushing yards and 800 receiving yards in a single college football season.
Some people think that Samuel's mother dropping him off his a good sign.
Good for him. Keep that head on straight rookie and that's the way to do it.— Allen Capps (@CappsAllen) July 25, 2017
TY! It is smart! This young Rookie is obviously being raised with the importance of a strong family foundation!— Legacy Lines (Lynn) (@LegacyLines) July 25, 2017
However, Samuel is not the first football player to have a parent send them off for their first day in the NFL. Eli Apple's mother, Annie, tweeted about her son's first day at the New York Giants training camp on Twitter last year.
