CHIPLEY - Vernon Yellow Jacket Quarterback Tristan Porter got quite the surprise before the Chipley-Vernon game Friday night. Older brother Nick, a U.S. Marine and 2012 VHS graduate, drove all night from his current duty station so that he could watch Porter play in the first regular game of the season.

Upon seeing his older brother, the VHS Junior dropped his helmet and water bottle and went in for the hug.
