A New Jersey high school football player honored his late mom on the field during a Friday game, all while bringing his team to the next round in playoffs.

Alex Brown, a senior at Red Bank Catholic High School, scored eight touchdowns in a single game the day after his mom, Michelle Brown, died of breast cancer, CBS New York reports. Alex, who told NJ.com that his mom was his “biggest inspiration,” threw for six touchdowns and ran for two.
