Rancho Mirage High School football player Israel "Izzy" Ramirez has been recovering for weeks after suffering a brain aneurysm that required three emergency brain surgeries within a matter of days.

Izzy's teammates have been visiting him at a rehabilitation hospital in Loma Linda as he underwent physical therapy, learning how to walk and talk again.

A month ago, Izzy was fighting for his life. Tonight, Izzy surprised his teammates at their playoff game in Riverside. With the help of his loved ones, Izzy walked to his teammates on the sideline, where he was met with hugs and high-fives.
