How great is this?

Last Thursday night, military mom Lt. Col. Cotina Jenkins-Sellers who had been station in Kuwait, stepped off of the plane and decided to surprise her 13 year old son, Derrick Jenkins, while playing at a Legacy Middle School basketball game.

He hadn’t seen her in over 8 months and had no idea she was even scheduled to return home. The coaches for both teams arranged it so that a fake technical foul would be called on Derrick’s team, sending him to the free throw line.

As he shot (and missed) both baskets, his mother crept up behind and whispered, “Aw, that’s okay Derrick.” His reaction to seeing her is priceless.

A local San Antonio, TX news station caught the whole thing in camera (see video below).
