Jason Cabinda Surprises Mom With New Car

Former Penn State football star Jason Cabinda certainly earned some brownie points this weekend by surprising his mother with a brand-new car.

Cabinda posted the wholesome content in an Instagram post titled “Surprise Momma Merry Christmas.” He said “every child” dreams of giving back to their parents for everything they do.

“There are people in life that you can truly say that you wouldn’t be where you are without them!…For me, it’s my mom,” Cabinda said. “From day one, she has been everything to me from raising me by herself to dropping me off from practice to practice between football, basketball, and lacrosse growing up.”

Cabinda said his mom’s “endless lessons” and wisdom “truly paid off.” He noted her efforts, including working multiple jobs, and said he’s “eternally grateful.”

“Every child dreams of being able to do something like this for their parent,” Cabinda said. “I thank God every single day for you and bringing you on this journey with me.”

Cabinda currently represents Penn State as a fullback with the Detroit Lions. Although his team isn’t in playoff contention, he contributed throughout the season by lining up key blocks for touchdowns on many occasions.

Cabinda is far from the first Nittany Lion to gift a parent a new set of wheels. Over the holidays, Marcus Allen surprised his mom with a new car, while Miles Sanders did the same in May 2019.
