It’s a tale of two high school basketball teams - Vanguard College Preparatory School vs the Gainesville Tornadoes.
Gainesville rarely had fans at their games because the team is from a juvenile correctional facility. Vanguard players knew this, and before the game, two players asked half of their fans to cheer for Gainesville.
The Gainesville players had no idea this was happening, so when they took the court to cheers they were surprised at the support. Half of the Vanguard cheerleaders even cheered for Gainesville.
A Vanguard player says, “This is how sports should be.”
