As many football fans will know, DeAndre Hopkins is one of the brightest stars of the NFL. The wide receiver for the Houston Texans was voted the 13th best player by his peers in a 2018 NFL Network poll. Hopkins joined the team in 2013, and since then he has become a popular fixture.

But just as familiar as Hopkins holding the ball in the end zone has been the sight of the player celebrating his most iconic moments with a special person in the crowd.
