Rockbridge County High School honors fallen soldier by retiring his jersey

ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY, Va. – Rockbridge County High School wanted to do something to recognize and honor the Army captain from Lexington

People in Rockbridge County will always remember No. 23 as one of the best to hit the soccer field. 

Capt. Andrew Ross was a phenomenal soccer player at the school. His father, Stephen Ross was his coach for many years. 

"He could play with both feet. He had good training in Roanoke," said Stephen. 

Friday night, Rockbridge County High School retired his jersey. 

"They don't just do this for anybody," said Sarah Geisen, Andrew's sister. 

Geisen shared a common love for the game with her brother. 

"He had a little bit more in the talent area so he could talk trash with me a little bit," said Geisen.
