College hoops coach teaches a valuable lesson

On Veterans Day 2015, Virginia Tech Basketball Coach Buzz Williams brought his team together with a group of military Veterans to teach a lesson that extended well beyond the four corners of the court. With the Veterans standing in front of a row of chairs and his team members facing the Veterans, Williams said, “These guys, when they were your age, interrupted their life, they paused their education, they changed their career, and they gave their life for those chairs. So when the anthem is played, we’re going to stand like grown men and we’re going to honor men like this, that gave their life, so we can have a chair to sit in.”  The pep talk ended with the Veterans and players standing together and singing the National Anthem.
