"I was just surprised, I was doing homework," said Tito Figueroa. "I just heard somebody coming and I was like, 'Is that Tyrann Mathieu?' I was just surprised, it was awesome."

Mathieu handed out over 1,000 dollars in gifts to some surprised and grateful kids.

"That's what it is all about, I just want these families and these kids mostly, just be able to enjoy the holidays," said Mathieu.

Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson will do something similar on Tuesday, taking lucky kids to go on a shopping spree.
