Benton Harbor football coach surprised by GMA

ABC 57 has been following the story of the Benton Harbor football team. While the team lost the playoffs earlier this month, their story isn’t over yet. 

Monday morning, the school and the entire football team got the surprise of a lifetime from Good Morning America.

Their target? They wanted to surprise a man, who surprised an entire community by coming out of retirement and turning a football team around.

To Coach Elliot Uzelac, it’s not about winning football games. He’s working to change lives, using football as a catalyst of change.
