AUSTIN -- The homecoming festivities were in full swing at Westwood High School Friday night. But Friday's game was less about winning or losing and more about a life lesson learned off the field.
The Westwood Warriors were on fire as they entered the field for their homecoming game against Lake Travis High School.
Working quietly behind the scenes, like he has for several years, was Ty Harvey.
The 17-year-old is a trainer for the Westwood football team. Harvey was also one of the candidates for Westwood High School's Homecoming King.
"He's a great kid. From what my girls say he's just a wonderful guy and he's so important to the school spirit. Everyone just enjoys being with him so much," Martha Webb, a Westwood parent, said.
"He's one of the most caring people I've ever met." said Westwood football player Jacob Overstreet. "He gets it from his family, his friends, everybody. It's a big community around Ty."
At half-time came the moment so many had been waiting for. Announced from the big speakers, Harvey was declared the newest Westwood High School Homecoming King.
