WELLINGTON, Ohio-- The rivalry basketball game between Wellington and Keystone on Friday will have a much different tone this year after an 8th grader died Tuesday after collapsing during soccer practice.

On Thursday, Wellington High School students were signing their name to a poster made by the Wellington cheerleaders. It will hang in the gym during Friday's game in honor of Andrew Guyer, 13, who was also a basketball player.

"It's a huge poster and it says, 'Once a Duke, Always a Duke, in loving memory of Andrew Thomas Guyer,'" said Hannah Watters, cheerleader.

Also on Friday, the gym, which is normally decked out in maroon and white, will be a sea of blue-- Drew's favorite color.

Wellington's opponent, Keystone High School, will present the family with a special jersey before Friday's varsity basketball game.

And, during the 3-point shot at halftime, the money that usually goes to the boosters will go to Drew's family.
