VIDEO: Favre honors mom whose son died in combat

Green Bay Packers legend Brett Favre is appearing in an NBC/NFL video which shows how a high school football program in Virginia is honoring a fallen service member.

He surprises the soldier's mom, a big Favre fan, in the process.

Brian "Bucky" Anderson, a former player at Broadway High School, was killed in Afghanistan in 2010.

Brad Lutz, the current head coach there, set up a program to honor those who have died serving our country.

This year, they chose to particularly honor Anderson.

NBC ran this story on the TODAY Show, with Bucky's mom Margaret being featured in the story.

Who is Margaret's favorite football player of all time? Yep, the old gunslinger.

Guess who shows up at her house to see her and Coach Lutz...to honor her with possible tickets to a Packers game and a chance to see Super Bowl 50?

Watch.
