Sister Speaks Out After Soldier Brother's Senior Game Surprise

Posted: Updated:
READING, Pa. -

It's a story more than 11.5 million of you saw on our FOX 29 Facebook page. On Monday night, we spoke with the young woman who shows some serious love for her brother.

The video from Albright College shows senior basketball player Meghan Boyle reacting to seeing her brother Specialist William Boyle for the first time in a year.

He's in the Army and was deployed to Afghanistan.

But Boyle had no idea that he'd surprise her during her senior day basketball game.

"I just remember seeing him and then booking it for him. I watched the video again and saw myself screaming. Didn't realize I was screaming at the time," she said. "He's an amazing guy and, I mean, he's a phenomenal military man."

Boyle said she spent the night with her brother just talking and enjoying each other's company. He'll head back to his base in Kentucky on Monday.
