Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks gave team custodian Alfonso Garcia the gift of a lifetime: a surprise trip for him and his son to Super Bowl LIII.
Cooks presented an overwhelmed Garcia with the gift in a moment caught on camera and posted to the Rams' Twitter account.
In the video, Cooks tells a speechless Garcia, “On behalf of the team and the organization, we would love to invite you and your son Josh [on] a roundtrip to the Super Bowl to come hang out with us. You mean so much to us and you know that you’re special. What you do around here, and everything that you do, does not go unnoticed.”
The trip includes free tickets to the Super Bowl for Garcia and his son as well as an all-inclusive hotel stay for the weekend in Atlanta.
Cooks said to USA Today of Garcia, "Oh, man, Alfonso — the guy is special, man. He keeps our locker room in tip-top shape. He has such a special soul."
Garcia was completely overcome by Cooks' generosity. “This is a dream come true, man. Ever since I was a little boy.”
Whether or not the Rams earn their victory on Sunday, Garcia will certainly count himself a winner, and we count Brandin Cooks as one, too.
