EDMOND, Okla. – An Edmond high school student was supposed to be honored at a banquet recently, but got quite a surprise from his teammates.

Justin Norman, a track and field athlete at Edmond North High School, was set to be honored at the school’s sports banquet.

However, Norman learned he would have to miss the banquet because it was at the same time as his shift at Subway.

According to Edmond Public Schools Athletic Director Mike Nunley, Norman’s job helps to support his family so missing a shift was out of the question.

When his teammates found out that he would miss the banquet, they came up with a plan of their own.

After the banquet ended, the students headed to Subway to present Norman with his awards and held a second banquet in his honor.
