Hannah Price looked happy when her name was called as Harlem’s homecoming queen at halftime of the football game Friday night, but she didn’t choke up until she was crowned.
Bulldogs quarterback Trey Price came out of the team’s locker room at halftime, swapping his helmet for a homecoming king hat. He placed the crown on his sister’s head and gave her a big hug.
That’s when Hannah Price got misty-eyed,
“My twin brother and I are so close,” Price said. “Seeing him win homecoming king was absolutely awesome.”
The crowning was the culmination of homecoming week, which included a powderpuff football game Wednesday and a bonfire Thursday night.
Before the queen was announced, the candidates for queen each took their turn in the limelight, walking from midfield with their fathers escorting. Morgan Barton and Anna Cason were named first and second runners-up, respectively. Along with Price and Barton are teammates on Harlem’s softball team.
It’s a great honor,” Price said of being named homecoming queen. ‘‘I’m blessed and thankful to be able to represent Harlem.”
