BLACKSBURG (WSLS 10) An online video is getting a lot of attention from the Virginia Tech community.

The video, from November, shows Head Basketball Coach Buzz Williams introducing his players to service men and women.

Williams brought in a just over a dozen veterans from all branches in the military as part of his Veteran's Day tradition.

Former Air Force Colonel Rock Roszak was among those who met the Hokies.

He said he's glad Coach Williams is teaching his players to appreciate those who sacrifice their lives for others.

"You see a guy, a head coach who is a father figure, he's raising young men to be good citizens, not just good basketball players," Roszak said.
