Even though the NFL Draft isn't in Vegas, Iowa OT Tristan Wirfs still rolled out the red carpet for his mother
Tristan Wirfs still wanted to show his mother how much he appreciated everything she has done. The two won’t get to share that special moment in Las Vegas, when the former Iowa offensive tackle hears his name called, so he brought a special moment home.
Wirfs — who is expected to be selected early in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft — rolled out the red carpet for his mother outside her home just hours before the draft was scheduled to start. It was a touching moment between the two.
ESPN’s Rich Cimini posted the video of Wirfs’ mother walking down the red carpet. And when she got to the end of it, he presented her with a bouquet of flowers.
Who needs Vegas? Highly-rated OT Tristan Wirfs invites his mom, Sarah, to walk the red carpet in front of their home in Mount Vernon, Iowa. They lived in a trailer park until Tristan was 5. In a few hours, he will be a first-round pick. #NFLDraft pic.twitter.com/yO7iUxE9WH

What a cool way to show appreciation.
Wirfs has been tabbed as one of the top offensive linemen in this year’s NFL Draft and could go as high as No. 4, according to some projections. Regardless of where he lands or how high he’s selected, Wirfs has a high ceiling at the next level.
