INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - From the first step inside the gates at Decatur Central's football stadium, it was clear who the Hawks were playing for.
"It's important to show support. You know, they're going through a tough time and it's important for the community to come together and show them we're here for them," said Decatur Central Coach, Angelo Robles.
Normally playing in the band, this time Sierra and Jonathan Bradway were sitting on the field with their Mom; the first time without their Dad.
"We miss them as part of the band but we can't wait to get them back and see how they're doing," said Director of Bands, Tim Cox.
After playing an emotional performance at the funeral Thursday, again the Decatur Central marching band was back at it Friday, blue ribbons and all, dedicating their performance to Officer Bradway's memory.
It was another long day for the students but an opportunity their leader called an honor and blessing.
"We spent a lot of time talking to the band about sacrifice and that we're going to sacrifice some time and we're going to sacrifice some sleep and we're going to stay up extra late and finish our homework that we missed on Thursday but a couple nights of sacrifice, that's not too much to ask considering they've given the ultimate sacrifice," said Cox.
From the fans in stands, to the cheerleaders on the track, and the players on the field, this homecoming game had more to do with honoring a home going and letting one family know they're not alone.
Over $1,400 was raised in cash donations for the Bradways during Friday night's game.
