A beloved football coach at a Tennessee high school has always let his players know that he has their backs, and the team recently let him know in a big way that they've got his.
Narcellus Black, who is known to the team as "Coach Squeaky," has volunteered as a coach and mentor at the school for nearly 20 years. Current and former players regard him as a father or grandfather because he's always doling out words of advice and offering them support when dealing with personal problems.
His car was badly vandalized in October and the players, alumni and other members of the community teamed up to buy him a new set of wheels.
They launched a massive fundraising effort and raised enough money to buy him a brand new Kia. There was even money left over to purchase insurance and gas for one year.
Coach Squeaky was shocked and brought to tears when he was presented with the car. One former player says, "It is so exciting and so moving to see Coach Squeaky receive a gift like this because it doesn’t even compare to the gift he has given to hundreds of kids who have come through this high school."
