This is what I found on

When a beloved teacher and coach returned home after a five-month deployment to Afghanistan, his athletes were overcome with emotion.

And if a group of teen boys rushing to hug their coach doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, nothing will.

Andrew Olson, a captain in the Army National Guard who coaches basketball and football, surprised his athletes on Monday at their school in Layton, Utah.

“With being a teacher, coach and in the military, he lives to serve others,” his wife, Tina Olson, told “Good Morning America.” She was with him at the time of the surprise appearance at Northridge High.

“He gets the most pride and excitement when he helps people accomplish something,” she added.
