“To the world you are a mother, but to me you are the absolute world,” he captioned the video, which was soundtracked by the Rick Ross song “Smile Mama, Smile.”  Christina Smith-Sylve had an emotional reaction to the house, crying before embracing her son inside the home.  Smith, who won the Heisman Trophy after helping Alabama to a perfect season in 2020, was raised by his mother in Amite City, Louisiana, a town with a population of roughly 4,500 people.
