    Man, what a beautiful family!!! 😊

  2. Alex Ray on February 19, 2020 at 5:42 pm

    And honestly it’s not that bad of a financial decision as well I’d probably do the same

  3. streetdisciple30 on February 19, 2020 at 5:44 pm

    He should trick out that basement…Unless he wants to keep childhood memories alive..
    Nothing like being around good parents and able to help them out while doing that.

  4. Santosh D on February 19, 2020 at 5:44 pm

    Now this is the type of Athlete who should be followed by youngsters.
    Respect your family and parents above everything. In the world of fake lifestyle there is still a symbol of honest living. 🙏🏼

    My last name is Lindsay as well. I also live in Colorado. And I have had to be living in my amazing parents house at the moment. You are truly an inspiration

    Phillip – “Hey ma can I go out tonight” Ma- not until you do the chores, and be home by 10, you got practice in the morning”😂😂 pro bowl running back still getting told when he has to be home

  17. vdn on February 19, 2020 at 6:00 pm

    "Why that much emotion?"

    "He’s my son."

    A simple answer that carries a lot of weight.

  18. Brain Tek on February 19, 2020 at 6:00 pm

    Dude was smarter than 99% of league players.

  19. Ethan Naka on February 19, 2020 at 6:02 pm

    Some of those people clowning him are going to be financially struggling 10 years from now. We’ll see who’s laughing then.

  20. manofsteel on February 19, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    I hate the Broncos…im a die hard Raider fan…but stories like this let u see the person behind the helmet and logo…i got to say im rooting for this guy to do big things…no matter what team hes on!

  21. E Robinson on February 19, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    The power, guidance and influence of a two parent household. Almost always the best option.

  22. elwin38 on February 19, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    Denver Broncos #1🏈🏈

  23. Dylan Garcia on February 19, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    Boston Scott pretty good now lol

  24. HungryMan TV Dinner on February 19, 2020 at 6:04 pm

    Phillip Lindsay will become of the all time great running backs in the NFL. Mark my words. He is a beast.

  25. Book of shadows contributor Brian on February 19, 2020 at 6:05 pm

    800th comment 🐗🐴👒

  26. jc dova on February 19, 2020 at 6:07 pm

    After rookie contract runs out this little dude is getting paid!! There will be a few teams lining up for his skills. It’s going to be well earned. Good luck kid keep making defenders look like fools.

  27. THE Taylor Throne on February 19, 2020 at 6:08 pm

    He sounds kinda retarted

  28. AG Olea on February 19, 2020 at 6:11 pm

    Great story, good guy and his parents did well raising this young man.

  29. Joronomo on February 19, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    So humbling and smart

  30. Kevin Cummings on February 19, 2020 at 6:14 pm

    He’s saving money

  31. M0 Here on February 19, 2020 at 6:14 pm

    He has really kind, happy eyes.
    Random.

  32. Wyatt Palmer on February 19, 2020 at 6:18 pm

    its just more american ideal capitalism propaganda. If he had upper class upbringing he wouldve been way better off than redoing his parents basement. are u kidding me?

  33. Officially TJG on February 19, 2020 at 6:18 pm

    Y’all killed that Charlie Hanson guy in the comments 😂😂😂😂😂

    But nah, from a Bengals fan I hope Lindsay succeeds in the NFL. Was rooting from him from the jump, and hope he has a long and healthy career.

  34. Swift Bastard on February 19, 2020 at 6:19 pm

    He looks good with braided hair

  35. Aaden’s vlog on February 19, 2020 at 6:21 pm

  38. Ares Clan on February 19, 2020 at 6:22 pm

  39. Louis Payan on February 19, 2020 at 6:23 pm

  40. Phillip Young on February 19, 2020 at 6:27 pm

    Some people will laugh (ladies!!!) at a cat about living in the basement. Well look at him now!!! And his folks, truly gems!!

  41. Harold Mcliggans on February 19, 2020 at 6:27 pm

  44. Money Jordan on February 19, 2020 at 6:30 pm

  45. Kellen S on February 19, 2020 at 6:31 pm

    Bruh Boston Scott is good

  46. Patrick on February 19, 2020 at 6:32 pm

    If he was in the nfc he wouldn’t be getting near this kind of recognition.

  47. johno5757 on February 19, 2020 at 6:33 pm

    He knows who that Boston Scott kid is now

  48. Jaleel Ferguson on February 19, 2020 at 6:33 pm

    Im related to him and I live In Colorado

  49. Nike Fanboy on February 19, 2020 at 6:35 pm

    I hope I can get on the Broncos

  50. 12Hatcher23 on February 19, 2020 at 6:36 pm

    He got it made…mama’s cooking, washing his clothes, buy his clothes and spending time with family. He’s in a better position not being drafted, he’ll probably get a new contract sooner, 2021 for about 10+ Mil a year.
