USC Trojans cornerback/wide receiver/special teamer Adoree’ Jackson’s postgame interview was crashed by his mother, Vianca Jackson, after the Trojans’ 45-7 victory over Utah State on Saturday. And as it turns out, it was for a very good reason.
While Adoree’ was getting interviewed, his mother came up to him to congratulate her son — he recorded a 77-yard touchdown on a punt return late in the third quarter. Vianca was visibly emotional during the moment.

“I wasn’t able to come to … games last year. I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. But God, He saved me in four months,” she said. “He gave me back to my baby, so I can see every game and I can be the proudest momma … I’m so proud of my son. I’m so proud of you, baby.”
Adoree’ made sure to show out with his mom in the stands.
