Coach surprises wife at practice with ring

At practice this week, Maurice Freeman, head coach at Brooks County High School (GA) surprised his wife Christine with a new ring.

Christine lost her original engagement ring recently after what has been a remarkably rough few months for the Freemans.

Just 3 weeks ago Christine lost her sister after losing her mother in January. Earlier this fall, Freeman and his team experienced the unimaginable. One of his players was the victim of a fatal shooting. 

Monday, he asked Christine to come to practice under the guise that she would be talking to the team about good grades. When she arrived, her husband of 15 years got on one knee and gave her a new ring. 

Knowing how much the Freemans have lost lately makes this seemingly small act of love seem even greater. Her smile says it all. 

We wish you both well. What a heartwarming story.
