Life is more than football and the team from Foothill High School in Palo Cedro, Calif., had a special way to share that message.
Friday, as the team entered the field, each player dropped a rose at the feet of cheerleader Ashley Adamietz who, according to KRCR-7, was diagnosed with leukemia last month.
The roses were orange, the color that represents leukemia awareness. Her cheer coach said Adamietz has been going through daily chemotherapy treatment.
“I can’t thank you enough to both teams for making my first game one to remember and making me cry tears of joy,” she wrote. “I love Foothill High School.”
