Packers' Eddie Lacy Fulfills Promise of Buying Parents a House

Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistNovember 18, 2014

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy has gone through some rough times in his life, but now that he is in the NFL, he is able to make life a little bit more comfortable for him and his family.

Lacy shared his family's story with ESPN in a heartwarming "Homecoming" feature. 

Before he was a big star at Alabama, Lacy and his family were forced out of their home by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. They settled into a trailer in Geismar, Louisiana.

Lacy used football to take out his frustration in a healthy way. Of course, he went on to be a star with the Crimson Tide and was selected by the Packers in the second round of the 2013 NFL draft.

Recently, the 24-year-old fulfilled a promise that he made to his parents. He made sure that they didn't have to live in a trailer by buying them a house.

Watch the video to hear Lacy's mother talk about everything they have been through and how the Packers running back's success has helped change their life.
