(KRCR, CNN NEWSOURCE) A high school cheerleader in Palo Cedro, California is getting a lot of love from her football team.

Ashley Adamietz is a senior who was recently diagnosed with leukemia.

One of the football players wanted to show support for her and he got the whole team to join.

As the players did their usual walk on to the field this past weekend, they each stopped to lay an orange rose at Ashley's feet.

Orange is the color for leukemia awareness.

Ashley says she was shocked, overwhelmed and speechless.
