Friday night lights matched with Homecoming makes for a super evening, but this “Coming Home” was even more heartwarming for one special honoree.
Emily Vidrine was the returning Homecoming Queen from 2013-14 to be recognized at Friday night’s game. Invited back as the 10-year honorees, she was recognized with team captains Hayden Speyrer, T.J. Venable, and Jake Whipp.
At halftime on the 50-yard line near the sideline following her introduction, she received a “surprise” she will remember forever … a marriage proposal! And she said YES to Cody Stelly! The crowd clapped and cheered to wish the happy couple well as they will now prepare for their wedding.
