Both sides in a competitive football game paused at half time to honor a veteran who was surprised with a Purple Heart medal.
"I'm glad he's my brother," Kyle Frady said.
Frady is quarterback for the East Henderson High School's JV football team. His brother, Alex Santos, was injured by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan two years ago.
Santos was paralyzed for a week but he regained feeling and is now living in Florida.
After waiting twice to receive the Purple Heart, he never got it. His mother said the military lost the medal.
It came in the mail last month to his mother and the family decided to do something special.
To keep it a surprise, the family asked Santos to drive up and present an award to younger brother Frady. But when he stepped onto the field he found out it was just the opposite.
"It's beautiful, I worked hard for it," Santos said.
Santos is still recovering and deals with PTSD. He's in school learning to be a counselor to help others struggling with traumatic injury and experiences.
A sign meant to make people think also got people talking in the Town of Blacksburg.
