When Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson was growing up, his mother always encouraged him to chase his dreams. And now that he has achieved those dreams, Deshaun is giving back to his mother -- by renovating the home he grew up in.

Back when Deshaun was 11, his family received a home from Habitat For Humanity. His mother, a throat cancer survivor, still lives in that home, and Deshaun decided it was time to give it a makeover.

Deshaun worked with a contracting team to pick out the perfect lights, the color scheme, right kitchen cabinets -- and a fireplace, something his mother has wanted for a long time.

Deshaun remembers that his mom gave 100 percent every day to make sure her kids would be successful. Calling her his rock and his hero, he was thrilled to be able to give her home a makeover for her friends and family to visit for years to come. ( ESPN )
