A big surprise for the Tift County High School quarterback on Senior Night.

Ryan Wedgeworth's brother Tyler is in the Navy and has never seen his little brother play football.

It's been almost a year since he's seen his family, but Tyler took special leave and surprised Ryan right before Friday game against Brunswick.

"My brother has been telling me he wasn't going to make it and I was upset and he come out here and surprised me it just means the world," said Ryan Wedegworth.

"I missed a whole lot of his high school career and a whole lot of experiences in high school. So for me to surprise him like this I kind of hope I can make up for it," said Tyler Wedegworth.

Tyler will return to duty in Norfolk, Virginia on Sunday. Ryan said the surprise fired him up to play a great game.
