Grade School Kids Surprise Coach With a New Car [VIDEO]
These boys -- Oh my gosh. Two grade-school football players from Lousiana have returned the favor to a man who has made a difference in their lives.
Gunnar Wirtz and Trevor Jeffrey are eighth-graders at Lafayette Christian Academy. They noticed that their coach, Skip Badineaux, had been driving an unreliable vehicle for quite some time and decided to do something about it.
Through hard work and fundraising, the pair was able to raise about $12,000.
"We cut grass, pulled weeds, all kinds of stuff like that," Trevor said.
The boys got some help from a local automotive dealership, picking out a GMC Terrain that would be a good fit for Badineaux and his family.
Needless to say, the coach was touched by the generosity.
"All I did was be a coach. Every day at school, I see them. If they're having a bad day, I try to talk to them and show them the right way," Babineaux tells KATC. "For them to think of me that way, it's a blessing. It's really a blessing, and I appreciate it. It only comes from above."
