Reporter: His real name is norsalus black but everyone just calls him coach squeaky or squeak. For years he's coached football and other sports at Tennessee high school in Bristol, Tennessee. He does laundry, sets up food, and at every game, he's right there. If I have need questions about life or about sports I just come to him because he's one of the main person in my life that I can ask. Coach squeaky is the best. I love you, coach squeaky. Reporter: He's a volunteer coach, so he doesn't get paid. And he's been driving a 25-year-old car. So, the head coach, Mike Mayes, got the idea to replace it. The team, parents, and the community all pitched in and on a cold day with snow flurries coach squeaky got his new ride complete with insurance for a year and gas money. He taught me how to be a gentleman, that's why we love him. He deserves this more than anybody. Reporter: Overcome by emotion, he had no words. But later he did tell us he believes what he's doing is his life's calling, and he's thankful. And now coach squeak knows how grateful his community is for all that he does. Linsey Davis, ABC news. Nice ride. Tonight, we salute coach squeaky and Tennessee high school for being "America strong." Thanks for watching. I'm Tom llamas in New York. David Muir right back here tomorrow night. Have a great evening. Good night.
