Break out the box of tissues because this video is a tear-jerker. We’ve all seen those Military surprise homecoming videos on TV, the Internet and at many sports games but this one really pulled at the heartstrings.
Lt. Col. Cotina Jenkins-Sellers, who’s been deployed to Kuwait for the past 8 months, decided to surprise her youngest son Derrick at his basketball game at Legacy Middle School in San Antonio, Texas. Teachers, coaches and Jenkins-Sellers worked together to devise a plan. After calling a fake technical foul, Derrick stood at the free throw line for two shots, both of which he missed. His mother stood inches behind him offering him encouragement with a simple “aw, that’s alright Derrick.” The boy immediately turned around as tears streamed down his face in excitement.
