Two teens received a heartwarming surprise while preparing to spend their weekend under the Friday night lights.
Cheerleaders at the Cotaco Junior High School in Somerville, Alabama were prepping for the Friday night football game while Sgt. Taylor waited in disguise and out of view.
Cheerleaders at the Cotaco Junior High School were prepping for the Friday night football game while Sgt. Taylor waited in disguise and out of view.
Every week, the squad picks a different captain, and this week, they picked Taylor's daughter, Brianna.
While the squad warming up, her father, dressed as the school's mascot, walked in to join the group.
When he took off the mascot head, tears of joy streamed from Brianna's face.
Taylor then took a trip to Brewer High School to surprise his son, Brewer, who was prepping to play his first game as center lineman. Brewer said he wanted nothing more than for his father to see his first game.
He wasn't able to make it home for Brianna's birthday or this past Christmas. So win or lose on the grid iron, a soldier's gift, makes it a double surprise and them a complete family once again.
Sgt. Taylor's deployment was shortened a couple weeks so that's why he was able to come home early.
He told Nashville's News 2 it was hard to keep the secret, but once he saw his children's faces, he was well worth it.
