During last week’s Miami Dolphins victory over the New York Giants, a fan attempted to intercept a touchdown ball that wide receiver Tyreek Hill was trying to give to his mother.
Hill had just scored a 69-yard touchdown and headed toward the end zone seats in search of his mother.
He threw the ball into the stands and a Dolphins fan caught it.
Hill’s mother, Anesha Sanchez, appeared to tell the enthusiastic fan that she was the star wide receiver’s mother, and the man delivered the touchdown ball.

Hill talked about the interaction after the Dolphins’ 31-16 win over the Giants. Miami improved to 4-1 on the season.
“My mom told me before the game, as I was driving there, ‘I need to be a part of your touchdown celebration today.’ And I said, ‘Mom, I’m going to get fined.’ And she said, ‘I don’t care about that. I need to be part of [it] today. Make it about mom,'” Hill said via USA Today.

Hill apparently has no hard feelings toward the fan. A video on social media showed Hill surprising the fan with an autographed soccer ball and jersey.
Last week, Hill made it clear that “no one messes with” her mother.
“So when I wrote it down, I was calling her. She was coming down, and when I gave it to her, a guy took it. Someone took it. My mom, [she is] a bulldog She was like, ‘What? Take my ball, boy. I have a flag for it. It was worth it though. Team Mom all day. … Nobody messes with mom.”
Towards the end of the video, Hill and the fan were seen laughing at the viral moment. The fan expressed gratitude that Hill gave him the autographed memorabilia.
“He gave me a ball… he went out of his way to give me a soccer ball. This is totally unbelievable,” the fan said in the video.
Hill finished last week’s game against the Giants with eight receptions for 181 yards and a touchdown.
