DINWIDDIE COUNTY, Va. -- A Dinwiddie High School student received a big surprise from the football coach Friday afternoon, according to CBS 6. 

Head football coach Billy Mills named Traquan Valentine as honorary captain of the game against Salem High School.

Valentine received a special jersey, completed the coin toss and got to run onto the field as a captain.

The theme for the game was yellow and folks in attendance donned yellow ‘Smile Like Ke’Asia’ T-shirts to honor Ke’Asia Adkins, the Dinwiddie cheerleader who was killed in July. Her cousin was later indicted for her murder.

Dinwiddie beat Salem 27- to 20.
