Trey McBride has become football's newest rising star, and he is likely be the first tight end selected in this year's NFL Draft. However, he says he owes it all to his two moms, reported Outsports.

McBride told the "Today" that his his mothers, Kate and Jen, have: "done a great job of pushing me to be the best person of myself, constantly getting support and love."

His mom Kate chimed in, "I'm excited to see him just live his dream. When your kid comes to you when they're little and they say they want to be president, it's 'OK, hunny, that's great.' He wanted to play in the NFL, and he's going to do it."

In an interview Monday on NBC's "Today," the standout from Colorado State University talked about the positive impact his mothers, Kate and Jen, have had on his life.

A student at Colorado State University, McBride won the Mackey Award, given to the top tight end in college football, and had a banner year — becoming the first tight end in Rams history to surpass 1,000 yards.

While McBride recognizes the significance of his upcoming draft selection — he's set to become the first NFL player with same-sex parents — boasting about the love and affection he receives from his moms is nothing new.

As McBride gets ready to become the first NFL player with two moms, he says he views going to the big leagues as an opportunity to bring change.

"I think it could really be the platform to kind of help change things and kind of shine a light on this, but really, it's just normal to me," he said.
