Washington Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice continued his generous offseason by surprising his mother with a new car.

Guice, who was selected in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft, shared a video on Twitter of his mother's reaction as he arrived at her Baton Rouge, La., home in a white Jaguar SUV with a bow on the hood.

His mother, Beulah, could barely contain herself before her son christened the car with a bottle of champagne.

Guice was raised by his mother after his father was murdered when he was young.

The 21-year-old Guice's most recent gift comes on the heels of raising money for cancer research and taking random Redskins fans to the movies.

Guice rushed for 1,251 yards and 11 touchdowns last season at LSU. He was even better as a sophomore, piling up 1,387 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns.

The 5-foot-11, 220-pound Guice set school records for the longest run (96 yards) and rushing yards in one game (285). Guice left with a career average of 6.527 yards per carry, also an LSU record.

Guice left LSU with the fifth-highest rushing total in school history (3,074 yards), one spot behind Leonard Fournette (3,830 yards).
