There was a different kind of touchdown Friday night at Nunley Stadium. This one involved a helicopter touching down in the middle of the field and delivering an honorary pink football to family members of Hailey Ann Taylor.
A sophomore at WCHS, Hailey lost a three-year battle to cancer Aug. 25.
The football presentation was part of Pink Out Night, a touching event aimed at raising cancer awareness. The football team wore special pink uniforms and there was pink everywhere in the stands. Money raised during the event will be earmarked for a scholarship to be awarded to a WCHS graduate who has overcome cancer.
It won't be the last time the Pioneer football team is scheduled to wear pink this year. School officials say the pink uniforms will be worn again during a home game in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
