Knoxville mom clocks in on the court for daughter on Mother's Day

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A Knoxville mom spent her Mother's Day volunteering at her daughter's basketball game.

"I love it," said Tanisha Roebuck, who is a mother volunteer at her daughter's basketball game. "Jalia was like 'I'm so sorry you have to do this on Mother's day'. I said, 'this is the best Mother's Day'. I used to play basketball, so I'm all in."

Sometimes Tanisha Roebuck cheers on her daughter Jalia from the sidelines, but for Mother's Day, it was from the score table.

"My mom means everything to me," said Jalia Jones, Roebuck daughter.

Roebuck volunteered as the score keeper for the district championship game.

"Whenever I can help out, i'll help out, whatever, if it's soccer, basketball track, I'm all in," said Roebuck. "I love sports."

Jalia is grateful for her mom.

"I like my mom because she takes care of me, cooks for me, and lets me play sports," said Jones.

Jones has a twin brother, Jayden, and an older sister, Kennedy.

"I just love being a mom," said Roebuck. "You are shaping someone's life. You are watching them from little to growing up, seeing what you're teaching them and they're actually doing it. It's just beautiful just to watch someone that you birth grow up to be great kids because my kids are absolutely amazing."

Roebuck wanted to send a special message to all mothers on the court.

"Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's out here," said Roebuck. "There's tons of mothers out here today."
