MIAMI (KGO) -- 49ers running back Raheem Mostert loves his grandpa. When we asked him which family member was the most excited to watch him play in a Super Bowl, he instantly smiled.
He says his grandpa has been supporting him his whole life.

Mostert is coming off the biggest game in his career, the NFC Championship against the Packers where he rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns.
Yet, he still looks back at those childhood game tapes, every time he visits grandpa.
"We still have the VCR's," he said. "I know he's so proud."
Now, his grandpa will get to watch him on play on the world's biggest stage.
"He's coming to the game!" Mostert said, beaming. "I gave him the invite and he almost burst out in tears he was so excited."
They still have all the old VHS tapes, but this time, he says Gramps will record with some newer technology.
