OKLAHOMA CITY -

With Veterans Day right around the corner, the Oklahoma City School District is honoring some of Oklahoma's Finest.

A handful of Oklahoma City high schools recognized veterans Friday night. For a lot of them, it means a lot.

Ted Perry coaches the offensive and defensive lines at Heritage Hall. He is a Heritage Hall alum and a 2005 West Point grad who did two tours in Iraq, and was awarded the Purple Heart after taking a sniper's bullet in the shoulder.

"It's always heartwarming to know that Americans support the troops. Because it wasn't always that way," he said.

High school football was a special time for anyone who ever played it. For Perry, he said it was the best time of his life.
