Former Bronco, current ECU coach Scottie Montgomery surprises mother with son's football scholarship

East Carolina football coach Scottie Montgomery surprised a mother with a scholarship for her son.

A former Denver Bronco made this Mother's Day weekend a very special one for a family in Carolina. 

Scottie Montgomery--who played wide receiver for the Broncos in 2001--is now the head football coach at East Carolina University. 

One of the many athletes playing for him is Kiante Anderson, a walk-on who joined the team in 2015. 

But, he's not a walk-on anymore. 

For Mother's Day, Coach Montgomery surprised Kiante's mother, Tia Chapman, while she was working her job at an elementary school. 

Chapman initially thought Montgomery was just delivering a nice Mother's Day card. Instead, she opened his gift to see a letter announcing that her son had been put on scholarship. 

The result might just bring you to tears.
