Missouri Western soldier surprise featured in unforgettable ESPN compilation


A soldier surprise on the campus of a Missouri university made its way into an emotional compilation video by ESPN.

The video, which has been airing on air and online since the weekend, features dozens of soldier homecomings, many of them at sporting events.

Among those featured is the reunion of Missouri Western women's basketball player Lanicia Lawrence.

Her father, US Army Staff Sgt. Barry Lawrence, surprised her in January by appearing on court toward the end of the Griffons' practice.
