(Chelsea Update would like to thank Bobby Lee for these photos and the information in this story.)

A heartwarming moment occurred during the medal ceremony for men’s 1-meter diving during the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Swimming and Diving Championship.

Jake Burris, the Albion senior from Chelsea, hopped off the award stand and presented the medal to his father and coach, Eric Burris.
