The skies above Jefferson City had a little something extra in them Wednesday evening. Skydivers provided a pre-game show at the Carson-Newman soccer game.
The divers from Skydive East Tennessee parachuted into midfield carrying the American flag, the Carson-Newman flag, and the soccer ball for the game versus nearby Tusculum.
For one of the skydivers, it was a return home.
"I wanted to do it so bad, I was like 'I will jump for free, I want in on this,' and it's really nice to get to come back to Carson-Newman, and just do something for fun," said Carson-Newman alum Mikael Stephens.
