It Was A Normal Football Game, But Watch What Happens When A Player Sees The Referee

I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of military homecomings.

It’s a really special moment between family members who have all sacrificed to protect us. When Joe Egersheim came back from a year stationed in Kuwait as part of the Army Reserves, he wanted to surprise his son and daughter. He chose a football game as the perfect stage for their reunion.

Everyone went to huddle up, but one player named Cole thought things seemed a little bit “off.”

That’s when he realized who the ref actually was. Welcome home, Dad!

His daughter, Olivia, is a cheerleader. She was also on the field and came running over.

Watch the entire heartwarming reunion below.

This is such an adorable idea for a surprise, and I’m sure the whole family is grateful to have Dad home safe and sound.
