Hundreds of fans in red and white are cheering for more than just a title game.
"The fact that he's here makes everything seem like it's gonna be OK."
As the Norfolk Catholic team jogged onto the football field, another teammate watched from up above.
"It's a dream come true, last week we didn't think we'd be here and you know here we are."
Isaac Pfeifer suffered a spinal cord injury in Norfolk Catholic's quarter-final game. For the first time since his injury he's out of the hospital and in the only place he wants to be.
"I feel happy. How come? Because they care about my brother."
Down in the stands Isaac's brother gets the crowd going, roaring for the team and his brother.
Isaac power towels swing through the air and signs fill the stands. All for the Pfeifer family.
"It's amazing, it just warms our hearts and there's been so many people that have been praying for us and sending us text messages and caring and it's awesome."
"It means a lot you know we love him with all of our hearts and it just feels so good to know that he has these prayers and all this support going out for him and so many people that are behind him and his family."
