But this story just might change our preconceived notions of what happens at prom. The actions of a delightful young man might just make your entire week!

The Fossil Ridge SaberCats are a massive success, and became well known for being winners. Even though they have a clean record, they have had their ups and downs, and have lost a few games here and there. But overall, this is one determined team of players that will train hard to beat their opponents, no matter what. Most recently, they beat their local rivals from Fort Collins for the very first time in 5 long years, in 2016.

The whole school had been anticipating that game, as you can imagine, wondering if they’d finally be able to beat their Fort Collins rivals after training so hard. To say that this game was a big deal is an understatement! Max scored four touchdown in the first half, and the crowds were quick to cheer. But it wasn’t his incredible track record that’d make this game memorable in Max’s life. Oh no. Something else was about to happen, most specifically, during the intermission of the homecoming game.

Despite being so well-liked, attractive, popular, and the star of his school’s sports team, Max Akin’s got a softer side, according to his friends. He’s your typical normal, down-to-earth teen who’s always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. The football hero being nominated as Homecoming King was no surprise, given that everyone at school loved him. But what Max decided to do with that nomination, surely didn’t shock the people who knew him, but it was truly unexpected for the rest of us.
