CCU student wins football tickets for soldier father

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Safety wasn't a worry this weekend for Darryl Reusch. For the first time in nearly a year, he was able to come back from Kuwait and visit his daughter who goes to CCU. The two spent the weekend doing everything they could in their short time together.

"Now that I'm not home, we only get to spend a weekend together, a couple of days, so I wanted to make the best out of the time that we had," said daughter Marisa Reusch.

The one thing Marisa wanted to make the weekend even more special, was a ticket for her dad to attend the Coastal Carolina University football game.

Unfortunately, it was sold out.

"I just wanted him to experience what Coastal is really about, and how our environment is compared to other schools," she said.

Early Saturday, she noticed a tweet from Coastal offering two tickets to the sold out game. She tweeted them back and hoped for the best.

Later that day she got a notification that the tickets were hers.

"My dad was actually surprised that we would win them, we were kind of doubtful about it, but luckily we did," she said.

"It feels good," said father Darryl. "Nice that she thought of doing something special like that."

After a fun-filled weekend, the two said their goodbyes Sunday morning at the airport. Darryl will travel back to their home in West Virginia, before serving another six months in Kuwait.

Darryl says after his six months is up overseas, he will come right back and visit his daughter again.
