The football team at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, took the field Friday for its first home game since a Feb. 14 shooting that killed 17 students and staff members.
The team earned an emotional 23-6 win over South Broward High.
There was a "17" logo at midfield, and the players wore the number on their helmets in tribute to the victims of the deadliest high school shooting in United States history.
Offensive line coach Aaron Feis and athletic director Chris Hixon were among those killed.
"We won't ever be over it," head coach Willis May said, per David Furones of the Sun Sentinel. "It's never going to be something that we just get over and forget about. It'll be with us for the rest of our lives. We've just got to learn from it and grow from it and hopefully become stronger from it."
Sports have likely been a helpful distraction for Stoneman Douglas, with the hockey team winning the state championship less than two weeks after the shooting.
The football team had also won its first road game of the year a week earlier.
