WATCH: California high school football team displays ultimate show of respect to cheerleader

This is what it’s all about ladies and gents.

Foothill High School in Palo Cedro, California displayed the ultimate show of respect for one of their own whos job is to cheer them to victory each and every game. Ashley Adamietz, a cheerleader at Foothill High School was diagnosed with leukemia last month.

This past Friday before the varsity football team played their game, each player on the team was holding an orange rose when they made their way onto the field. The color orange is the color associated with Leukemia Awareness. Each player passed by Adamietz and placed the rose they were holding at her feet. The crowd cheering in the background added something more special to any already special moment on the football field.

Que the goosebumps…

SHARE FOR SUPPORT! I found out the story behind this GREAT VIDEO of high school students caring for each other in times of need. According to his coach, #55 Ryan Caetano is the football player who came forward to say he wanted to show appreciation for Ashley Adamietz, a senior cheerleader battling Leukemia. #AshleyStrong KRCR News Channel 7"We took care of family business, before we took care of business on the field." -Joey Brown, Foothill High School Head Football Coach (Palo Cedro, CA)

Adamietz took to her Twitter account the day after and expressed how much that special moment meant to her.

I don’t know where I’d be without the support of my family, friends and most importantly, my school❤️? pic.twitter.com/7vCFszFfoD

It’s stories like these that there aren’t enough of in the world. Such a small gesture from a football team that ended up being an even bigger moment for the person that the gesture was intended for.

Kudos to the Foothill High School football team for what they did for one of their own.

Born & raised in the mitten. Grew up in Traverse City, but moved down to the Redford, MI area after my Dad tragically passed away in 1999 because that's where he was being buried and we wanted to be down there with him. I'm an avid Detroit sports fan, growing up in the state of Michigan and having such a solid block of teams to root for is something special. Iv'e always liked discussing Detroit sports whether it be about the past, the present or even what the future holds for Michigan sports teams. It's a long time coming as I am very excited to be apart of the DSN team and be able to construct interesting features to be posted for Detroit Sports fans to read/discuss about.
