Rashard “Hollywood” Higgins balled out on Saturday.
In San Antonio, the Mesquite, Texas native had many fans in the stands, including his mom, high school coaches and lifelong friends. Higgins hoped to show out for his mom, which he did, with five catches for 103 yards and a touchdown.
“I tried my hardest to just put out for my state,” Higgins said after the Rams' 33-31 win over UTSA. “It felt good just playing in front of my mom. That was her first game that she has ever been able to make. It felt good [to play in front of her] and I just tried my best to get in that end zone for her.”
His mom didn't just notice, so did NBA player DeAndre Jordan, who is the older brother of Rams offensive lineman Brett Jordan.
