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…

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.
