Former Alabama football star DeVonta Smith buys mother a new house
Former Alabama football star and Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith bought his mother, Christina Smith-Sylve, a new house.
Smith was born and raised in Amite City, Louisiana, a town with a population of just over 4,000.
His mom cried and hugged him as she looked around the house, entering the front entryway before moving to the garage where two cars were parked.

The 6-foot, 174-pound wide receiver was selected in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles in April and recently signed his rookie contract.
The deal was worth $20.1 million over four years with a $12 million signing bonus.
Smith finished his career at Alabama with 3,971 yards and 47 touchdowns.
He came to Alabama as a five-star recruit in the class of 2017 alongside Tua Tagovailoa, Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III.
After choosing to return for his senior season at Alabama, Smith led the Crimson Tide to a National Championship.
