Amari Cooper shared a very cool photo and story on Instagram Monday.

Cooper, the Oakland Raiders receiver, shared a picture of his mother in front of a mansion and Range Rover, and talked about how they went from the projects to her now having a dream house and car.

I grew up in the projects, we didn't even own a car.. The whole story is way too long and melancholic, but just know a dream can go a long way if it's followed by faith and hard work. It took us 20+ years but now my mother has the house and car of her dreams. You deserve it mama, I love you. #JustTheBeginning

Cooper, who played college ball at Alabama, has averaged 78.5 catches, 1,111.5 and 5.5 touchdowns per season in his first two years in the NFL. The Oakland Raiders star has more than lived up to his position as a No. 4 overall draft pick.
