Blue for Emily


In this image both of the teams playing can be seen wearing blue. All of my teammates and most of our rival team's players wore blue on a frigid Tuesday night. Though it was neither of our school colors, we smeared the color across our faces and through our hair- all of it for a very good reason. The Saturday night before that game one of my schools students died in a motorcycle accident while she was out joy riding with her dad. That Monday at school everyone who had social media or friends that did wore blue with the learned knowledge that it was her favorite color, this had become a ritual for those of our school who passed away. We repped their favorite color like they had repped our school not long ago. Though no one on either of the teams knew her personally, it shows the sportsmanship that both team illustrated in coordinating that they should too wear blue, in support of Emily's family. #NBScholarship
